Photography - 35mm and digital photography  

Fine art photography characterized by exceptional detail, simplicity of composition, and excellent use of color. Primarily but not exclusively nature subjects. Artist Statement  

I photograph many of the subjects that I knew as a child wandering the woods, fields, and creeks around my parent's Central Ohio home. As an adult I have continued to find peace and solitude while exploring rivers and lakes by canoe, and hiking the woods and meadows on foot, but my world has also expanded, leaving no subjects off limits to my camera.

I print my photographs using archival inks and papers and display them in archival mats. I strive for simplicity not only in the creation of photographs, but also in their presentation, using black mats and black frames.

I am a juried member of the Louisville Artisans Guild and the Kentucky Guild of Artists and Craftsmen. My work has been featured in area galleries and can also be seen at shows throughout the region including Kentucky, Indiana, and Ohio.
