I have primarily approached the arts as a pathway to look into and try to understand the environment and a way to cope with anxiety, loss, or other emotions.  Materially, this has been expressed as small groupings of work that (in varying degrees) interweave photography, text, and illustration — a triangulation of mediums that can help home-in on an idea.  The northern Plains has been a recurring literal/figurative backdrop in this work.  Of the areas of the US I have lived in, this landscape has had the strongest personal impact and resonance.  In recent years I have begun to focus on photomacrography.  I typically approach this type of work as more of a scientific exercise looking at structural characteristics rather than an artistic one driven by personal narrative.  You can find some of these photographs here.
