ARTIST BIO / STATEMENT

Reshaping the Familiar

photo manipulation explores reality - enhancing it,
expanding its boundaries,
allowing us to experience it with new eyes.

image alteration yields fresh and unique perspectives.

whether simple or complicated,
transforming the common and everyday into the unexpected
produces unique visual effects. we find comfort in what we know,
but deviating from the norm brings us to attention, compelling us to see reality with a different eye.

manipulation invites viewer interaction.
standing in contrast to representational photography,
subjective imagery reshapes the familiar, offering surprises that are both dramatic and intriguing.

"Born and raised in Saskatchewan, I pursued studies in Radio and Television production in Calgary before moving to Vancouver in 1972 where I joined an acclaimed creative team as visual director, developing highly emotive multi-media marketing / communication pieces for large corporations and international events such as EXPO 86 and the 1988 Calgary Winter Olympics.

Countless images later, I found myself working up North throughout the winter months, where change was as good as a rest. This experience became a creative catalyst, challenging me to redis cover and redefine my passion for photography. Initially inspired by the North’s isolated and unique landscapes, I began to experiment, watching my photography evolve into highly graphic imagery, offering a fresh and unique perspective."
