Over 40 years working as an Artist, Poet, Photographer, Engraver, Curator, Gallery Manager, Artists Manager and arts educator. I have worked in many mediums: painting, printmaking, conventional and digital photography. I started out as a painter and print maker then gravitated into photography.
My concentration is primarily street scenes, architecture, cityscapes, landscapes, and florals, which I image and print on paper, fabric, glass, ceramics and aluminum plates. It usually takes me an average of two years to get from original photograph to completed image through the process of extensive manipulation and layering. Once the process is completed I will compress and flatten layers and convert to a printable .jpeg file of tiff file. The extensive layering allows me to print with robust color density, rich color saturation with the maximum potential for full spectrum of colors and hues possible.
I exhibit my work in galleries, museums, art fairs and print shows around the world and have multiple pieces purchased for private collections.
