IN MY WORKROOM, 2018 [Photograph by Carolyn Nicklin with postproduction by me]

I've been making artwork for nearly thirty years. 

Writing for longer. 

I began as a photographer. Made portraits for two decades.  I was looking to show other people their own beauty, while searching in their faces to find my own. 

A few years ago, for an unknown reason, I began drawing the words I’d written; their meaning now expressed by the shape I drew them in as well as via their literal meaning. 

These days my art is word and image and photograph and drawing, all come together to say what's true for me.

My work is made in counterpoint to all that is tough difficult brutal in this life.  It's my way out of the dark.  It’s necessary to me like breathing.

This site of mine joins all my dots, bring all the various parts of what I do together.  Aims to express with a kind of fullness what it is that I'm trying to say via word and image and portrait and social media and exhibition.

I'm hoping that in navigating your way through these pages, you find something I've made or written that really resonates with you, that you feel strongly for.  

It's why I do what I do: to make you feel.

After all, how it feels is everything.
