Artist Statement

My early attempts at figure photography were influenced by art school figure drawing classes where we as students generally interpreted the female nude in an representational “idealized” form.  After numerous photographic ventures  photographs in this vein, I decided that there was need to abandon this traditional line of thinking and I began to utilize the styles of the photographers and artists whom I admired: Lautrec, Weston, Hopper and Arbus to name a few.
