My Bio I’ve been an artist/photographer for over 35 years. Often, especially with my landscape work, I embrace what I refer to as the ‘intimate landscape’. I’m interested in the worldly as well as the ‘spirit’ landscape.

Recently I’ve been working with the Power of Hope Kibera (pohk.org), a non-profit micro-enterprise/women’s empowerment community organization in the Nairobi slum of Kibera (Kenya). Out of this experience has come the series Kibera: a Slice of Heaven. Prints available at Hamburg Kennedy Photographs, NY.
