I find myself drawn to the most humble and mundane objects…

things that go typically unnoticed and unworthy of second thought.

In so, I try to elevate the significance of pedestrian items with dramatic light and shadows reminiscent of the chiaroscuro effect captured by the masters.

One will also discover tongue-in-cheek wit, or thought provoking interpretations, in the titles of most of my compositions.
