My Artist Statement



He who shines the light that reflects off the skin, intricately created masterpieces, one by one, with much detail like fingers to touch, eyes to see and lips to kiss. He who shines the light gave her breast to feed, feet to walk the land and a tongue to taste the fruit that dangle from the branches that sway to the breeze from his breath. Our bodies are the testimony of the first creation of art. We wear the light like it is a robe. And I reveal to you the true beauty that I see. We are the result of his fine art. My models become the earth, the emotional ocean, sensuous exotic creatures, tempting forbidden fruit. I use my camera like a paintbrush, to create beautiful images of the male and female form. With inspiration from Herb Ritts and Andreas Bitesnich, my mission is to diversify the cultural spectrum in fine art photography, with classic and timeless pieces. I am an emerging, self-taught photographer residing in Los Angeles, CA., whom has spent the majority of my life in Houston, TX. My work consists of an array of photographs of portraits and nudes. I find it interesting to create art using live figures. With my work, I allow everyone to see the true and outstanding beauty of a woman’s curves, the fullness of her lips, the textures of her hair and the grace in the extensions of her arms. I also display the broadness in the man’s back, the signs of struggle in his shoulders and the determination in his eyes. In my photographs, one may witness the essence, sensuality, strong structure and power of the body with the use of passion but without the use of excessive sexuality. I hope that with my photographs, people should be able to further extend their appreciation of the body and see that all people are sensual creatures; sensual creatures with a vast array of skin tones. My photographs have successfully embraced both the inner and outer beauty of men and women.
 GOD is the true artist. I am the channel.
