Artist statement: During my Master’s degree course of study at Disney’s California Institute of the Arts, I studied with mentors John Baldessari, Fine Arts/painting, and John Bache, Photography, both renowned internationally active artists. There I learned the rigors of the art world, and professionalism, as a semester end review could last anywhere from a four to nine hours long grueling critique. My work stems from the matrix of a given environmental circumstance that envelop our daily lives, ambience. I approach each circumstance in its originality, and capture the essence without dictating, but using my skills to execute the fundamental substance of one’s performance, artistry, wedding story, naturally, utilizing elements of lighting, composition, personification, particularly in one’s story, as tools.
