I began exploring photography in 1982. Working exclusively in black and white, my earliest focus was portraiture and children. This led to the start of a portrait studio and to my ongoing commitment to childrenâ€™s imagery. In recent years this interest has expanded to include the teaching of photographic literacy to children ages 10 â€“ 18. This work has found favor in both the private and public sector of education, as well as special education. As a photographic artist, my focus has also included landscape, cityscape and architecture. â€œBillscapes,â€ and its recent offshoot, â€œDeconstruction,â€ reflect my interest in urban environment and commerceâ€™s influence on our visual gestalt. This work has received recognition through exhibition, juried competitions, as well as corporate and museum acquisition. â€Deconstructionâ€ was last exhibited at OK Harris Works of Art, in January of 2009.
