If I had to pick a theme to my work, I would say it is the design elements that dominate both the color and b&w work. Through working with children for the past 6 years teaching them the English language, giving the abstract definition, my own ability to see has expanded.
I call my work with the children 'The Lost Years.' At a gut level, Iím both fascinated and bothered by the fact that I canít remember much before the age of 5 years old. It bothers me that I missed something of this great human experience. I'm moved and compelled to do this work and capture the essence of the child so they can look at themselves and see who they were when they were innocent. I have spent hundreds upon hundreds of hours trying to understand myself as an adult from the inside out but these children, once grown, can look at themselves as a child and understand who they were, from the outside in. Faces revel what is 'real' inside the child in the moment.
I grew up at the beaches of Rockaway and Florida. I scoured the shore for shells, listened to Elvis and took photos.
I came to Los Angeles in the late 70's, worked behind-the-scenes in TV news for 20 years, won the L.A. Press Award for Continuity, and took a buy-out happily when it was offered.
I'm inspired everyday by light and children and design.
