Creating fine art photography since 1975, my catalog titled “Travels:
The First 30 Years” is comprised of several themes including
portraits of nature, landscapes and abstract images. These photographs
were taken during travels in the US and Europe. I consider my current
phase as transitional, featuring more focused bodies of work including
“Death Valley, the 100 year bloom,” “Vegas”
and my ongoing “Zoom” series. I am an active member and
Director of Programs for the Ken Caryl Art Guild.
I have worked in many fields over the years including commercial
photography. My experiences in desktop publishing, graphic arts, multimedia
production, video production, technical illustration and business
management have all strengthened my photographic skills. My previous
careers often involved travel, including a three-year stay in Italy,
which provided photographic opportunities. I am currently a commercial
photographer for Gambro BCT, a medical device manufacturing company.
In 2005 I decided to take a serious look at showing my fine art photography
to a wider audience. At the same time I started scanning my archives
of negatives and positives to convert them to my digital darkroom
process. This was an excellent exercise that let me reflect on my
past work, evaluate my personal style and build an inventory of prints
for sale. Also in this year, I completed a certification in Photo
Digital Imaging online at the Academy of Art University and attended
photography seminars at PhotoPlus Expo.
Recently I have been showing my work at small art fairs and Ken Caryl
Art Guild exhibits. My first solo show will be at GJ’s Frame
Gallery in Littleton, Colorado during November and December. I was
accepted to show at the Bacchus Art Show at the Belmar Center in Lakewood
on November 4 from 6pm to 9pm.
I am currently working on developing new bodies of work based on
my previous works, dynamic symmetry and my view of the world.
