The photo medium affords me a way to step outside of myself, to embark on a journey to a different world, and to construct images of a magical place created from deep within my imagination.

I became interested in fantasy as a child. Thinking back to a simpler time when all you had to do was use your imagination and you could be anywhere. My memories inspired me to explore the idea of creating imaginary worlds.

I am interested in creating images that transport the viewer to a make-believe place. I use various real world elements such as texture, color, and combining multiple images in my work that bring my ideas to life. A major influence on my work has been the Surrealist movement which has allowed me to combine my conscious and unconscious states, freeing me to create dreamworlds and fantasy landscapes.
