Fine Art Photographer / Graphic Designer. Photography and design are avenues of self-expression for me. They allow me to make visual statements in ways that I could never articulate with words. My work is about revealing my inner world, the way I see, feel and experience life.

 

I have a Bachelors Degree in Education and a Masters Degree in Visual Communications from Indiana University. In my early career, I was Art Director at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. Afterward, I spent 15 years as a free-lance photographer and graphic designer. I have a strong background in film and darkroom work and was an early adopter of digital technology. I taught for 25 years at the college level in Northern California. Throughout my career, I have instructed hundreds of students, photographers, and creative professionals to become proficient in the use of Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, and 

Final Cut Pro.

 

My “e-motion series” was chosen to be published in “LensWorks” annual publication “Seeing in Sixes 2017”. I was one of 50 photographers chosen from over 1,100 submissions. Additionally, I have been published in Photoshop User Magazine. Exhibited at The Center for Fine Art Photography Self-Portrait Show in Fort Collins, Colorado and exhibited in the B&W Magazine Website Portfolio Gallery. 

I have published 5 books. The first entitled "Screen Captured", 50 images from internet video chat rooms. The second entitled "Life Is But A Dream", a collection of 150 images and personal thoughts. A third book, entitled "Art for Art’s Sake", a project of over 50artist portraits that celebrate the inner drive of an artist as a creative person. A fourth book entitled Day of the Dead, commemorating the celebration of Dia de Los Muertos in Mexico...and a fifth book entitled "e-motion series" which visually represents deep emotions and concepts that are

universally shared.
