Artist StatementI have been in love with photography since the first time I picked up a camera. Every time I wander out with my camera it’s an adventure. I enjoy capturing unique colors, patterns, reflections, and light. It is my hope that my images speak for themselves.
As an artist, I have been creating photographs for the past 30 years. My evolution as an artist parallels my professional development. In the past, I had darkrooms both at home and work. Today, I use my digital camera and Adobe Photoshop in both locations.
I hope to share with the viewer a sense of wonder of the natural world and of the beauty that surrounds us, sometimes found in the most unexpected places.
I worked as a photographer and visual artist for the National Institute of Standards and Technology for over 30 years. Much of my early work was in black and white photography, and I became skilled in the art of the darkroom. In my work for the government, I was an early adapter to the computer and the digital age. I am skilled in Adobe Photoshop and use it as my modern darkroom.
I enjoy the challenges posed by new techniques and technological developments in photography.
I am a member of the National Association of Photoshop Photographers.
I am the Newsletter editor for The “Frederick Camera Clique” a photography club in Frederick MD.
