My photography concentrates on the fantastical, building moving narratives into still images. Like my writing, my photographs are about mixing the fictional with the world we know. I am interested in the transformation of the human form and storytelling.
Photography is a passion for me. I enjoy taking photos of people, landscapes and events, though my favorite thing to do is to create stories using my photographs.
I produced the covers to the Anthology “Voices: New Media Fiction” and the novels “Playing for Keeps”, “The Case of the Singing Sword” and “The Case of the Pitchers Pendant”.
As a writer myself, I understand how important a cover is to achieving a visual connection from the reader to the vision of the author. I enjoy working with authors and publishers to create a cover which fits their vision for the book.
