Artist and Photographer
I have been an artist/photographer since I was in my teens. With a lifetime of practicing art I have tried a wide variety of things, but photography has remained constant through it all starting with a little Brownie camera, moving into 35 mm transparencies and prints, pinhole, Holga, digital, point and shoot, DSLR, and even my Droid phone camera. If it takes a photo I'll try it. However, I prefer DSLR over anything.
I have a Associate of Fine Arts degree from Monroe County Community College and a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Eastern Michigan University with a major in photography.
My favorite things to photograph and draw are anything in God's beautiful creation, but especially scenic landscapes, flowers, with birds and animals when I can get them to stay in one place long enough. I enjoy traveling, but focus on local photography: Knowing an area well is extremely beneficial.
I am currently working much more in Scratchboard and posting more of those images here for prints. Some original art is also available.
