Abstract photography is my passion and specialty! My work has been informed by the work of painters including Gerhard Richter, Jackson Pollack, Mark Rothko and Claude Monet—I want to use my camera to make pictures like they did with paint. Most often, my process is the opposite of typical photography. Many of my pictures look nothing like the things I pointed my camera at! I try to design captivating images that show something other than what’s actually there.
