In manipulating my personal photographs, through layering, extracting, rotating, and collaging on the computer, I aim to bring design to raw nature and summon up a new exciting world of my own creation yet one still anchored in its inspiration, the mountains and canyons of the Southwest. Think of the manifold richness, the raw materials of wind and water erosion operating on the sediments of ancient seas that produce over the eons the multiplicity of form that characterize a Southwest scene. They are my tropes, the wellspring of my idiom, recorded initially in digital medium, then transformed into my own creation. Hand drawn lines complete the composition.
