My images begin with photographs that I’ve taken, either of my studio floor, a bar of soap, or other seemingly mundane things that I come upon, but for whatever reason am attracted to. I then transform them in Photoshop and turn them into Polyester Plate Lithographs.
The origin is inconsequential – it is the alteration that gives the image its new life.
