I photograph pretty much anything that gets in front of my camera. I prefer natural light photography and use Adobe Photoshop to meld the reality of the subject with my vision of it.
Currently, I'm working on photos taken in 2013, last year and this year at the Cimitero Monumentale di Milano Italia (The Monumental Cemetery in Milan, Italy). Opened in 1866, it covers 2,700,000 square feet filled with contemporary and classical Italian sculptures as well as Greek temples, elaborate obelisks, and other original works.
Recent exhibits: The Opera House Artists exhibit September 1-31 at Martin Realty/Gallery in Arcadia.
Art of the River/Rio de la Paz Festival in Arcadia, Florida in February 2015.
Most gratifying award: Third place in photography by judge, Clyde Butcher, for my black and white photo of the FLA Post #4143 VFW Riders at the Art of the River Exhibit in February, 2014. Being given this award by a master of black and white photography, felt like a true validation that I'm on the right path.
Mid-western at birth, I lived in Norfolk, VA, Boston, MA, Chicago, IL and Asheville, NC before moving to southwestern Florida in 1999.
Education: B. S. in Fine Arts with Highest Honors from Northeastern University in Boston - Studio Major in Painting.
