Welcome to Studio 48

After years of talk, I have finally completed the conversion of my home into a creative work/live space in downtown San Jose.  Studio 48 is the culmination of my lifelong fascination with photography, art, movies, music, numbers, Americana, story-telling, and the desire to capture and share visually arresting images from the most unlikely places. To my eyes, a rusty sign can be every bit as interesting as a sunset – and it’s my hope that through my work I can inspire others to see the world around them in exciting new ways.

It all begins with an image.  However, the photograph is just one media, and the camera just one of many tools used in a creative process that includes acrylic paint, beeswax, resin, and found objects applied to birch wood panels. Finished works will include large single panels as well as multi-image storyboards (The Cinematic Series, coming soon) that combine narrative and impressionistic elements – thus insuring each viewer enjoys their own unique interpretive experience.

I hope you enjoy the finished works as much as I enjoy creating them.  And yes, they are for sale.  Come up and see me sometime.
