To rekindle my creativity while working full-time these past few years, I devoted myself to photography. I began to ask family, friends, and their children to model for me and created make-believe reveries. I crafted costumes out of blankets and second-hand finds along with props to tell a story. We would go out on location or shoot in my garage and I would refine the scenes in Photoshop. Recently I started to build more sets to use in my images. Many of my earlier images were photographed in the winter snow or on the frozen lake and have a lightheartedness to them. To broaden my vision, I have started exploring characters that have a touch more wickedness, but still have a sense of mischievousness to them.
