I make small worlds large and large worlds small  through macro photography and digital transformation techniques. I’m inspired by the opportunity to capture the magic hidden within the mundane and the extraordinary within the ordinary.

The manipulation of scale plays a large role in my work, as does the juxtaposition of compositional elements and the use of layering to create the appearance of depth and a cohesive visual experience.

All of my pieces begin with literal photographs ranging from closeups of natural and human-made objects to poignant moments on the street and awe-inspiring majestic landscapes. I then use digital tools to create composite “microscapes” and abstracts that fuse multiple photographs into surreal and imaginary worlds rendered on metal and canvas prints and in multimedia formats.

My artwork is an invitation to explore alternative realities filled with mystery, suspense, and surprise. Viewers navigate between “what is” and “what if,” between the predicable and unpredictable, and between the world as seen and the world reimagined.

My work has been displayed in juried and member events sponsored by the Cambridge Art Association, Gallery Twist, and the Cambridge Arts Council. Four of my microscapes printed on canvas and metallic paper were selected by Boston Properties for display in Google’s lobby. I have also had three solo exhibitions in Cambridge establishments.
