Statement / Bio
My oil paintings and photographs are from my extensive travels to all seven continents.
I have been an artist and photographer for the past 40 years. My photography started with the first camera given to me as a child, a Kodak Instamatic camera, which took square pictures. While in high school I was enrolled in college level drawing and painting classes at the Maryland Institute of Art, and also received a 35mm Nikon FM camera with manual focus. I have been primarily shooting with Nikon ever since.

My work is of the world as I see it, whether a landscape, section of a building, or Antarctic ice whose detail becomes an abstract image. For my photography I prefer to shoot in natural light. My photo images are not manipulated, and most changes are minor such as cropping, resizing, or lightening an area I do not want in shadow. Traveling around the world I sometimes have had to endure extreme physical challenges to put myself into position to get a particular image.
