Artist Statement

 

Surrealists believe the creativity which comes from deep within a person’s subconscious, is more powerful and more authentic than any product of conscious thought.  They sought a revolution against the constraints of the rational mind.

I rely on my intuition when I make a photograph.  This ultimately results in images that are a mirrored reflection of my emotions. My subconscious is my compass, seeing for me.
