Contemporary American landscape photographer and painter. 
  
Artist statement: 
  
There is something tricky to my biography ... I work in a cycle ... where I photograph for a few years ... print images ... and then use the photographs in installations and drawings. You will probably catch the cycle of life and death ... of well ... it seems to me to be the big one, and worth attention. What this means is most of my work is ephemeral and has a complexity innate to the work ... but hard to pin down in Biographies and in the art world ... I do engage the art world at times ... so these are the things that get saved. What drives me is a simple question - What is the purpose of the things I make - that is - What is the purpose of art.
