I use photography to capture images I want to save. Initially, I used photos as reference for paintings or to record work that I have done. Since 2001, when I went to RCC to earn a graphic design degree and learned Photoshop, photography has taken on a more prominent role in my art. From digital paintings to combining photos to tell a story, I use photography daily in my work. I also restore old damaged photos and do weddings and group events when my schedule allows.
