An artists conversation
"I was happy to be chosen for this short film where I was interviewed about my art and photography. This clip has excerpts from that interview. I thank the filmmaker and appreciate the finished piece. It was for one of his class projects…Oh yeah, that filmmaker… is my son Jason."
"Nice job kiddo!"

I love to create art and capture images. I embrace the basic concept of creating something from nothing and enjoy the path of creating art and imagery. It starts with what inspires me, which is almost everything!
My imagery and artistic creations range from traditional photography to photo-paintings and digital art. When I create, I utilize the skills I have learned from my years of study in painting, sculpture, graphic design, photography and more. I also continue to study a variety of artist that intrigue and inspire me and my work.
I begin my creations with a thought of what I would like to achieve or when I see something that catches my eye. For my photography, I like to discover, study and capture a particular place, subject or moment of the day. For all of my art and imagery, I try to enhance and highlight the uniqueness of each piece by experimenting with composition, color, tone and technique. I am mindful to compliment each subject through my approach. I also continue to study a variety of artist and photographers that intrigue me and inspire new approaches to my art.
My efforts and goals are to set a tone and evoke a mood or feeling. I want to create imagery which goes beyond traditional images… for me, it is an art form of discovery.
For those who view and purchase my work, my wish is the same… I hope those who do take the time to view my images, enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed discovering, studying and capturing each one.
