This year is filled with new goals. I'll be applying for entrance into some gallery shows and I'll be setting up a table to vend prints as well.
PROJECTS
  • Homelessness & Addictions --street photography only in the sense that I'm out on the streets talking with people that live on the streets. Hearing their story that they care to tell and often sharing a cup of coffee or a sandwich. It is with their voluntary participation that I am able to capture them and overlay their image with their own personal statement that they would like the world to know about them. Started in Belfast, Northern Ireland March 2018, I have been blessed with conversations and a moment in life snapshots of people that live in the streets of Liverpool, London, Birmingham, and Brussels along with Louisiana, Kentucky and Alabama. 
  • Self-Talk --a series of visual impact of how words have the power to shape how we look at ourselves. Flipping the script and choosing positive words to write upon ourselves to help us transform and heal from a life time of negative inner dialogue. 
  • DreamingReality series was born from a passion/obsession with a panoramic photography styling known as "tiny planets". Several images [sometimes dozens or even hundreds] are "stitched" together to form a panoramic landscape, often distorted and then polarized to different degrees which results in either a "Tiny Planet" looking image or the opposite, which I refer to as tunnels. Having recently returning to work with this type of imagery, I have begun to ask myself "if this.....then why not, that...." which has pulled me into the rabbit hole of exploration and form with this series.  
UPCOMING LARGE PROJECT
  • Potato Sack Creations --based on the potato sack images of Marilyn Monroe where a journalist allegedly claimed she was only beautiful due to the fancy wardrobe of Hollywood. This series will start Summer 2019 with plans for the beauty captures to take place in Lexington, KY--Huntsville, AL--New Orleans, LA.
CURRENT SMALL PROJECTS

  • Poppet Kandy --follows a similar line of thought as the "Self-talk" series where we acknowledge that what we say about ourselves has an impact. Poppet Kandy is flipping the script on voodoo dolls being about "spells" against others and instead utilize them to make a lasting impact on ourselves through simplistic ritualization of self-care directed at the Poppet Kandy piece. While at least 90% of my art is photography based, the Poppet Kandy has me flowing in and out of comfort zones with mixed mediums that include fabric art, sculpting and painting. Eventually, this series will take on a life of it's own as there are several dozen ideas at different stages of development.
  • Fates & Debauchery --is an ongoing artistic social commentary about the choices we make during different stages of our lives that probably won't answer any questions without bringing up more questions. Are we in charge of our destiny or do the fates weave the tapestry? 
  • painting, ---it took way too many years to pick up painting. many of the backgrounds that i use in my images are textures created from painting.
  • sculpting, --i'm just a baby here---but the ideas keep flowing. several of the first pieces in the works are actually being created for ...you guessed it...my photography.
  • sewing, --fabric art plays a part in many of the current undertakings with a sculpture that i hope to finish in the near future

If you would like to support small artists, please add me to your consideration list. As I start approaching galleries with my series, it is important and a must that I be able to give them finished ready to hang prints. Your support helps to get me from the dreaming and doing stage to the show it stage. Every bit helps and is extremely appreciated.
