|Introduction||Artist’s Statement: “I’ve got a head full of ideas that are driving me insane.” Bob Dylan said it and I’ve been living it. One of my ideas is the possibility that my work will be recognized. I have devoted my time behind the lens to exposing the extraordinary in the ordinary, whether it is found in the lines of an old face or a workbench covered with scraps. Although I’m inclined to express myself in black and white, a large segment of my work is in color. Answers to three common questions: 1) Canon not Nikon 2) Digital not film 3) Paintshop Pro not Photo Shop|
