I was born in Switzerland, grew up in Austria, and returned home to the US at 20. While studying film at Temple University, I worked for the sculptor Karl Stirner. (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Karl_Stirner). I was taught about form and the essence of art and design. This understanding influences my photography. I try to focus on the essential to maximize the experience. Small model cars printed on big canvases give the audience an unusual perspective of everyday/childhood objects. The toy from childhood is growing up to become a study of form and esthetics.
