Sweet Travel

I have been obsessed with sweets since birth (first word? “Coo-kie.”) and with travel since my first steps.  Many sugar-fueled trips later, I firmly believe that calories don’t count when you’re carrying your own bags.

The photos in this show were taken when I traveled to Japan in the summer of 2008 for an 85-day sweets safari.  This gluttonous approach taught me an enormous amount about Japanese art, history, and culture.  It is my pleasure to be able share that experience with you at Fresh Flours.

Current projects include a photo-memoir documenting his family’s journey from Berlin, Germany to Colville, Washington. He is the sole proprietor of a Seattle area fine art framing business.

“I feel I do my best work within distinct parameters, such as limited time or materials. I love texture. I am continually inspired by music and film, by the fleeting moments of a simple gesture and the play of light and shadow across a face. My artistic process is an extension of daily life and a reflection of what I see in people.”
