Closing up shop and doing other things .... this site will be gone soon. THANK YOU for your interest!
ABOUT MY PHOTOGRAPHY
**Early in 2019 I was no longer actively showing and marketing my photos and I am proceeding to "close up shop". This site will be gone as soon as I can figure out how to do that. :))) Thank you for your support for so many years.**
I love observing God's creation and how people have modified it, instilling in me a passion for travel. Not only do I want to experience life around the world, but to share my vision through photography. I love color since the world is in color, so most of my work is in color.
My photography is not easily described as to theme or style. I love variety and spontaneity in my life which shows in my subject matter. Rarely do I plan to photograph any specific subject. As I wander I am always observing. Using 35 mm cameras and primarily natural light, my "eye" may be attracted to how light is affecting a subject, or to a repetitive pattern or texture. I am captivated by scenes that show contrasts or inconsistencies, and scenes that are simply beautiful. Architecture, decorative detail, and their care capture my attention also.
I completed a two-year course from the New York Institute of Photography earning a Certificate in Professional Photography and the Canon Masters Course.
Although I have had a passion for photography most of my life, I first started marketing my art professionally after retiring from a career in law. Within a year of retirement I was exhibiting (juried and nonjuried exhibitions) and winning awards in state and local camera clubs competitions. I have earned more than 75 medals, plaques, ribbons, awards and inclusion in many juried exhibitions (e.g., Midwest Photo Exhibition, CoPA Juried) and art fairs (e.g., Art Fair on the Square in Madison, Boca Raton Museum of Art Fine Art Fair). In addition, I am honored to have been chosen to judge photo and art competitions and exhibitions.
