“Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life.”
― Pablo Picasso
As a lifelong artist, in my twenties I studied oil painting, watercolor, and sculpture at Lake Erie College and the Cleveland Institute of Art. Currently, photographing people and nature are my top interests. I adore dreamy Impressionistic looking images, but lean toward realism. I am a self taught photographer. Often I wish my photos were painting and try to make them look more like paintings.
My photographs have received many awards and can be found in homes and offices all over the United States. Prints are available for purchase in several fine art galleries in Western North Carolina.
I am an active member of the Photographic Society of America, Inc.
