# About me

I grew up with a fairly traditional approach to art. It was not until my undergraduate studies that I became interested in abstraction through the medium of painting. Black and white 35mm street photography consumed most of my interest, however, and despite ideas about merging these two approaches this idea stayed in the back of my mind for many years.

My graduate study was in education, but it would be difficult to say that my exposure to a community of educators - in addition to my new found love of qualitiative as well as quantitative research - had no impact on my understanding of art. I had always felt that language in general and writing in particular were elusive at best and so it was with some pleasure that I came to realize the power of words. I came to understand my relationship with art anew.

Around this time computing had begun to work its way into the visual arts. With my long term involvement with computers I felt I could merge my varied interests in the visual arts - drawing, painting, and photography - with my other interests in writing, computing, gaming, and the sciences. This blending of traditional approaches and non-traditional interests with contemporary media has fueled my work ever since.

Recently I have been employing the theme of the Artefacts of Conflict. The notion that all around us is evidence of conflict no matter where we look has been a real eye opener for me and has driven several series of work as well as a photography book. Whether we look at camouflage, the more obvious museums of war machines, or even the work place, we can find evidence of conflict and the artefacts this conflict leaves behind.
