I currently take three approaches to my work. I am a tree portraitist,

a surrealist sculptor/photographer, and contemporary documentary

photographer. These threads are tied through philosophies

of surrealism, shamanism and animism.

My objective within each of these categories is to

show the the underlying themes that connect the

transcendent and the mundane. This is the tradition

of magical realism in which one strives to see beyond the

periphery of cultural vision.
