Past Exhibitions

“Chinese Mojo” Chinese Mojo is a project of symbolism and expressionism, a cross-cultural family album. Every object has a story, every picture tells a story. Some are valuable objects while others were simple everyday items. It is a visual tapestry, a visual treasure box. Ultimately, a family story is unveiled in photography and words.

“Bird Cages” This visual meditation is based on a single photograph, originally taken in Suzhou, China. The artistic process of contemplating and working with multiple approaches to this image, as a form of mindful meditation, resulted in a state of personal catharsis.

  “Transcendence” This series of images is not intended to make a statement, but to create a point where fine art meets a state of peace, tranquility and comfort through beauty in unassuming objects and places.

  “Dance with me” As the title implies, this photo series evokes auditory and sensory responses. After all, you dance to music, not to photographs – nor do the photos focus on musicians or musical subjects. The subjects are Puerto Rico, Martinique or other Caribbean islands. Capturing this rhythmically intensive culture visually begs the other senses to tune to a rich island lifestyle.
