"I am a storyteller, inspired to find the narrative in everything around me, whether words, music; the smallest of moments, or the most amazing sights we see..."
When you lead an eclectic creative life, as I do, you sometimes find you're giving short shrift to one arena while focused on another:
Taking off for four months to be in a new musical does leave less time to promote your indie novels. Pounding pavements in search of publishing opportunities for a new book does demand enough energy that street shooting can get lost in the shuffle. Staying current with current culture will often distract from the craft of art. That sort of thing. And there really are only so many hours in a damn day, despite my arguments to the contrary!
I've been told throughout my career that I'd be wise to streamline my focus, choose a medium and stick with it; at least come up with a theme, a brand; a niche. But for whatever reason, and for better or worse, my artistic DNA will not seem to allow it. Never has. I remain convinced that ALL of art tells a story and that's my gig: telling stories. However I choose to tell them. Hence, the eclectic nature of it all... including my photography.
And given the need to breathe some fresh life into that part of my creative arsenal, and because this medium HAS been tickling my brain more in recent weeks, I put together a reel of the various images that have garnered the most attention from viewers and collectors over the years. Many are personal favorites, some are new, but all reflect my endless fascination with the world around me.
