For as long as I can remember, I have been taking photographs. Since retiring from a busy law practice, I’ve had the opportunity to travel extensively, and I have focused on creating images that are true to the spirit of the places I’ve visited. My goal is to capture the very essence of my experiences in whatever place I visit.
The images I am attracted to are both unique and iconic. I hope they bring you, the viewer, to a special place that evokes warmth, realism and a touch of mystery. I am successful when you have a sense of having shared my experience, but also a yearning to know more about the subject of the photograph. You may feel, just for a moment, that you, too, were there.
Primarily self-taught, I have deepened my photographic knowledge with courses at the International Center of Photography in New York and in workshops with some of today’s most respected photographers.
My New York exhibits include the Nature and Wildlife Photographers of Long Island at Phoenix Gallery, Bellport, NY; the 5th Annual Photography Competition at fotofoto gallery, Huntington, NY and the Long Island Center of Photography at The African-American Museum, Hempstead, NY.
Since moving to Arizona, my work has been published in Arizona Highways magazine and now is shown both in Sedona at the Village Gallery and in Williams at The Gallery in Williams.
I have participated in numerous shows at the Sedona Arts Center where I am a member and where I have won awards in both the “Professional” and “Emerging” artist categories.
My work is in private collections in numerous states in the USA as well as in Africa.
