Born from my love of traveling, I endeavor to capture the essence and characteristics that I find specific to a place.With multiple images collaged and manipulated, overlaid and intertwined, I am recreating pieces of my visual encounters and memories.The visual illusions created when multiple photographs are layered form distortions; teasing the eye.

This process develops the rudimentary ‘snap shots’ during travels into a visual memory of being in a place. It is more than an instant, yet elusive, and almost evasive, like our memories. The snap shot becomes a sense of being somewhere: senses including textures, colors, cool and warm tones, seasons, cultures. A sense of time; a moment having passed.

I take photos of anything and everything that interests me: patterns, colors, textures, food, architecture, and people. But one photo cannot encompass the Totality of Being in that place. Henceforth: Photo Montage!  One piece to share a sense of time, a journey, a descriptive narrative, a visual smorgasbord.

I have exhibited my Photo Montages in galleries and shows within the UK, as well as, South Korea, Lisbon, and Chicago. Several of my photos have been featured in Lonely Planet blogs.
