In January 2014, I got a cell phone with a standard cell phone camera capable of taking HDR photos. I took more photos in 2014 than in many years with my digital camera. Driving across the country and living in Baton Rouge, Louisiana inspired me to rely on my phone to document a wide range of visual inspirations. My motto is "Stop a moment to take a photo.". My trip to the Harwood Museum of Art in Taos, New Mexico in September was hugely inspiring. Even the daily routine of walking with my dog in Los Angeles, has given me reason to pause and compose a shot. Here is a random sample of photos from the past year, one from each month. I am looking forward to refining several photographic series and continuing to flow with the inspiration. Happy New Year 2015!
I create brightly colored narrative paintings that are inspired by dreams, visions, symbology and pop culture.
