ARTIST SUBMITTED BIO
I haven’t had any formal artistic training–consider myself self-taught. I have played guitar for 40+ years, taking photos for about that long too. I’ve been interested in video since 1982 and once I brought guitar into the mix, I began to consider myself a Multi-Media Artist. Working in theater and at an art museum broaden the picture. I think a toothbrush is a work of Art. I try to disregard boundaries and look at familiar situations in new ways, trying to apply certain freedoms and not be defined by a single art form. The assemblages are more a vessel for storytelling. Videos are mostly pure escapism with rhythm and pattern in music and color stimulation. Music is my search for an original tone and exploration of what certain guitar effect pedals can do. I enjoy arranging loops and original sounds for the movement of the videos, plus playing live events such as silent horror and altered films. It’s sort of a jack-of-all-trades.
