My works blur the line between photography and painting through imagery, technique, and printing methods.

The result is a startlingly evocative experience for the viewer.” – Maggie Shane, buyer
Chromium ink prints
All my artworks are printed with chromium inks on 100% cotton, acid-

Chromium inks use pigments like those in artists’ paints; these pigments are more stable and long-
