My love of Nature and patience to wait for optimal light and composition combine to produce photographs that are often described by others as “paintings.”
While growing up on a small farm in Wheeling, WV I came to appreciate and love Nature and the outdoors. I learned photography from a friend and a teacher in high school and from several books. After earning a PhD and teaching and doing research in chemistry for thirty-nine years, I revived my love of photography while traveling.
My subjects are often flora, fauna, landscapes (local and distant), wildlife, tennis, and others that stretch my imagination.
My works have appeared in many juried shows including the State of the Art Gallery Annual Photography Shows where a vertical panorama “Lonely Route” won an award in 2004, and “A Glimpse of Peek-A-Boo Trail” won the People’s Choice Award in 2014. My photographs adorn many offices including Ithaca Family Medicine, Cayuga Medical Associates, and the Triphammer Marketplace at which there are several large framed local scenes.
My works are for sale at my home gallery. In addition, I exhibit my fine art photography at one or two shows every year, including CAP’s Artist Market.
Please see my website for many images, and visit my studio to see framed and matted works, learn the stories behind them, and how I create archival inkjet fine-art prints on various media including watercolor paper, canvas, and back-light film.
