My photo abstracts are a celebration of the overlooked and unseen. I am drawn to the visual power of peeling paint, cracked walls and pavement, rusted metal, light filtering through dirty paned glass, tree bark, machinery, the geometry of architectural elements, and the landscape. Inspired by the details of these bits and pieces, I use them as my palette, as if they were each a tube of paint. In painterly fashion, I transform context and create something imagined out of something born in the real world. Focusing on surfaces and intersections, texture is enhanced, color emphasized, and forms rediscovered.
