Introduction

“an artist is a man who digests his own subjective impressions and knows how to find a general objective meaning in them, and how to express them in a convincing form”— Maxim Gorky as quoted in Design as Art by Bruno Munari

Creating digital collage came later in life for me: it is a new venture that evolved from my love of photography and mastery of Photoshop.  What I express through my art, however, goes further back to my Tennessee roots; of growing up in a small Southern town that was saturated with religion and the power of “church.”  It includes my own spiritual journey of self-discovery, alienation and contentment.  Through my study of religion, theology and psychology I am drawn toward the unconscious, universal truths, fear, courage, hope, contrast, hypocrisy, failures and dreams.   My process of creating is intuitive, open and responsive to the art.  It begins with an element, then two and on until the interaction between the elements of the work begins to reveal a story.  It is a creative partnership between the art and myself.  The art becomes the story that interacts with me and with the viewer.

I create my art exclusively in Photoshop.  My elements are from stock photography, my own photographs or those of my grandfather, who was an avid amateur photographer, or other public domain images from the Internet.   At the beginning of the process I review images until one “grabs me” and I continue the process until a rough example of the work begins to appear and I know the elements are in the right place.   My process then moves into more detail work until the art is complete.  At that point I experience joy and great satisfaction.

Thank you for looking at my Art.  It is my hope that it will say something to you.
