Capturing scenes of America and presenting them in black and white so the viewer can visualize them in the theater of their mind. A similar concept to reading a book or watching the movie. Allowing each viewer to develop their own feelings and visions. These American scenes show the declining state of living in rural America along with the familiar scenes of urban America, just as you remember them. Whatever the locale, on the best of days these images will stir up unexpected feelings and thoughts in the viewer.
Our work can be seen on our website and at various art shows, see our calendar (on the sidebar, on right) for dates and times.
