i am a fine art photographer, abstract painter, graphic designer, and mixed media artist based in denver, CO, USA. my work has been shown in various solo, jurored, and invitational shows; and can be found in numerous private and commercial collections. as the proprietor of tbellphotographic studio, i have also curated several art exhibits, which contained the work of local, national, and international artists.

 

i enjoy challenging preconceptions about photography through the creative post-production of imagery. i also use photographs and photo segments in digital collage, designs, photographic transfers, and in combination with paint and many other elements to create one-of-a-kind, text;ural mixed media paintings.

 

my creative process is spontaneous and intuitive. i strive for abstract simplicity, but my eyes also crave detail, defined boundaries, organization, repetition, contrast, and symmetry. my work is contemporary in style, but also contains nostalgic elements, making it compatible with most home and business environments. 

 

please contact me for additional details regarding media processes, editions, commissions, and pricing information. 

 

thank you for visiting my website!
