I let my subjects lead me. I love writing down parts of dreams or free-association thoughts in the night and then keeping those thoughts in my mind when I am out photographing. I try to capture those thoughts and feelings. One reoccurring theme that enters into my work time and time again is optical illusion. I was a big fan of M.C. Escher as a kid and continually find that influence in my work. I love when your mind can take something as concrete as a photograph and transform it so many ways. I am also very attracted to layers and compacted space that create a certain sensuality in nature. I realize I am exploring fantasy in nature.
