ABOUT THE PHOTOGRAPHER
From as early as I can remember, I loved and pursued arts, crafts and creative endeavors. However, when it came to making a living I spent many years working as a CPA, which took me all over the world and provided many incredible experiences for which I am grateful. However, it never satisfied the creative core of me. Therefore, when I retired from corporate America a few years ago, I took my photography from a hobby to a full-time pursuit and haven't looked back.
Although I took many wonderful photographs, some of which have appeared in galleries, it was only after I discovered the works of Brooke Shaden in early 2014, that I realized that I could use composite techniques to go beyond merely recording existing scenes to molding fun worlds and composites that were totally my own. This realization ignited my passion for fine art concept photography.
I also enjoy philosophy, and have found that everything I know and believe is beautifully summed up in Frank Baum’s, The Wizard of Oz books. My favorite “holiday” is Halloween, and many of my initial ideas are a fusion of philosophy and Halloween.
I love working with creative clients, who share my love of the unusual, bizarre, weird, wonderful and simply fun worlds I create. I love translating my clients' visions into a one-of-a-kind art piece.
My photographs have appeared in juried exhibits in Colorado and New York, in magazines and in on-line galleries.
