Digital Photography
Sellersville, PA

My fiance and I just bought a 2.9 acre property, inclusive of a main house, carriage house and dilapidated barn. Most would have looked at this property as a "dump" of sorts because it is in great need of repair and beautification. With some elbow grease, cleaning and a lifetime of "adjustments", we saw it as an opportunity to create our dream home.

This photograph was taken during our home inspection, when the property was in grave need of attention. I felt compelled to record the romantic simplicity of a window, letting in a flood of winter light, casting beautiful shadows, in abstraction, upon a curtain. Regardless of the surrounding repairs, this window demonstrates the possibility that lay just beyond the shadows.

Sanctuary c. 2008
4 x 6 Digital Collage in Photoshop
Sellersville, PA

My home is a place of peace and beauty where I can hide from the world and dream. I am inspired by my natural surroundings and what happens to them when I warp or romanticize them in my imagination. For this piece, I simply chose digital images of my house, the surrounding land, my fiance and my dogs and merged them into a manipulated collage.
