All of these photos were taken in my home studio. As an artist and a photographer, I like to combine both mediums within my work and create photographs that resemble paintings.

The reoccurring theme in this series is paintings that come to life. The greatest challenge with these pictures is coming up with a unique and creative idea, and then planning how to implement these thoughts into a photograph.
