Artist Statement
My images are simple (single figure) or single minded on one hand but on the other I try to show the complexity of what's on my mind through subtle and sometimes bold changes in body position, point-of-view, framing, tonal qualities, and a number of other formal factors.  The images almost always deal with issues surrounding race, fear, isolation, confrontation, struggle, spirituality, and change.
