curriculum vitae

LB PortraitMy work in multiple disciplines mirrors my cinematic and intimate experience of the world, polarity, and what it means to be human.  It also demonstrates the goggles through which I observe and process absurdity.

For two decades, I have been fortunate to see my photography in publications and projections on both coasts and abroad, and to serve as a liaison between the gritty wasteland of Ground Zero and the museums, historical institutions, and educational facilities that forever tell the story of 9.11.2001. 

In my twenties, I began a career photographing young Hollywood and its glossy fashion,  an environment where I developed my raw and honest style.  Since then I have seen much more and my insatiable, edgy curiosity has only grown.

I have never lived on the surface.  I can’t function there.

In 2013 I began painting and experimenting with mixed-media.  Working with new tools is invigorating, spontaneous, and playful.  I feel it in my work and in my person.

Recent works speak of the childlike curiosity I have with animals and the patterns of the natural world, while exploring the themes of rank, status, and self-definition in the human world. 

The shapes, patterns, and constellations of our Earth never bore me. Many things make me laugh for no real reason other than I can’t believe this thing exists. But some things make me downright ill, especially disregard for the living, seen or unseen.

I believe my rebellion against the un-thinking weaves a thread of tension throughout my otherwise-whimsical canvases, imagery, and self.
