The human heart and the color red symbolizes life, love and the hope of the future to me. They are symbolic of my literal patchwork heart due to a condition in my early 20's that caused my blood to flow backward. This required a cloth ring be sewn in place around my mitral valve. I have a deep connection towards the heart, the color red and even the life force itself; blood.
Which leaves me fascinated with Vampires and a morbid curiosity towards life. You can feel it pumping throughout my photographic work. And just like my patchwork heart always flowing forward never moving backward.
