My journey in photo art

images from around the world

My photographic journey began over 30 years ago. A 35mm format captured images as I traveled throughout the United States, Europe, Mediterranean and Far East. The mastery of computer sciences and digital photography gave me a new voice to record experiences.

I begin as most painters do with a photographic study. That study is the foundation for my paintings. The images are cropped and the painting begins. Those photographs become oil paintings, watercolors, pen & ink or chalk. I mold a precision technology and transform my surroundings into a one-of-a-kind conceptual painting that encourages us to see the world in a different way.

The beauty, simplicity and complexity of our lives are thoughtfully revealed through my lens. Candid portraiture, familiar images and landscapes are transformed and speak to the dreamer in each of us. I want my paintings to evoke fantasy, humor, joy and reflection.
