I have been photographing for more than 30 years, since my Dad gave me a World War II era Argus C3 rangefinder camera. In High School I took every photography course offered. I bought a vintage enlarger and worked in my basement darkroom developing black and white, gelatin silver prints from my 35mm negatives. I was a National Scholastic Art Awards Portfolio Nominee and was a recipient of the Regional Scholastic Gold Key Award. I majored in Art in college to prepare for a career as a fine art photographer, but switched paths and earned a Master of Science in Health Services Administration instead, working in hospitals in Georgia, New Hampshire, and Massachusetts before returning to my passion.
My work is in private collections around the world and has been included in a number of exhibitions in New York, Massachusetts, and Kentucky. I am a Juried Artist Member in Fine Art Photography in the Cape Cod Art Association http://www.capecodartassoc.org and a contributor of creative stock photography at Arcangel Images.
I always intend to volunteer my time to help others or for an environmental cause, but I have realized that the days and weeks pass by, filled with tasks I have to accomplish for my small business and time spent with my family. Therefore, I have decided to donate 15% of the annual profits from my art business to an environmental cause, as it is in all of our best interest to preserve our home on Earth.
