About the Artist:

I am a photographer,film-maker,photo illustrator and a playwright. As a result of my background in film and playwriting, my photo illustrations are assembled as if building a sequence of events or actions to arrive at a final image or destination. As a photo illustrator,I seek to imitate a pattern of the life cycle.Life is and can be transformational; we are born in one state of being and we physically die in another. By disassembling as well as reassembling portions of my images, I intentionally explore this transformational process. I recreate the image hoping to expand its message.
