As a professional photographer I have participated in juried art shows throughout California & the western states for over 25 years. My work has been purchased in both public & private collections & has received numerous awards.
After years of making photographs in a traditional "wet" darkroom, I made to move to digital printing. More recently, I retired my old 4 x 5 Graflex view camera & am using a Nikon digital camera. Whether in the darkroom or on the computer, I feel that making a beautiful photograph is an art in itself.
The most precious gift the medium of photography has given me is a heightened awareness of my surroundings. My work is an attempt to capture the beauty, feeling & mystery in everyday scenes.
My goal as an artist is to convey this quiet, deeply felt sense of wonder & connection.
I was born & raised in San Diego, Ca. After spending 30+ years in the beautiful Sierra foothills I moved to the Central Coast. I am very happy to be living at the beach, walking barefoot in the sand & photographing the incredible, ever changing face of my new home.
