After a brief love affair with close-up photography in the 80’s, I hung up my camera – due to the prohibitive costs of film photography. I ventured into jewelry, fused glass, product illustration and graphic design – always looking for an outlet for my creative spirit. When quality digital photography surfaced I was inspired to again pick up the camera, this time armed with deep skills in PhotoShop. I often leave my nature images untouced, but I love to create art using my photographs as primary elements of design. From the abstract to real-life depiction, I use the camera to reveal the beauty and mysteries often hidden from the human eye, or to simply tell a story.
