I was born and lived for many years in the Boston area. I then moved
to Los Angeles and finally to the beautiful San Francisco Bay Area.
I have had successful careers in both nursing and computers. While
helping small businesses maintain their computer systems, I dreamed
of becoming a full-time professional photographer and have finally
realized that dream.
The concept of stopping the action and holding that moment in time
forever has always excited me. That magic lured me into the world
of still photography. My computer skills are an essential part of
my approach to photography. The digital darkroom gives me the ability
to uncover, discover, and present my interpretation of an image.
My photographic style has moved away from the pure image to include
artful design and combines many of my own techniques to give my
photographs an unusual and painterly look.
I’d like the viewers of my photographs to be thrilled by the
nobility and grace of the animals in my pictures and by the unexpected
and surprising details of the people and landscapes in my travel
photography. I have also begun to create surrealistic photography.
I live and work in Menlo Park, California, and travel extensively
in pursuit of new photographic subjects. Always hoping that the
light and the action will be aligned, I’m ready to click the
shutter and make it my own. My work has appeared on the walls of
numerous business establishments and in private collections in Los
Angeles and the Bay Area.
