About the Artist

I am madly in love with the work of Rembrandt and Vermeer, I have the heart of an old Dutch Master. I love the rich colors and the dramatic yet real-life lighting that pulls the viewer in and holds them tightly. I hope to go beyond making pretty pictures and instead create images that challenge the viewer to look past the pretty and see what lies beneath. 

I'll never forget the first time I saw the issue of National Geographic magazine that had the young Afghan girl on the cover by Steve McCurry, I was so taken by the power of that portrait that photojournalism became an instant passion. I wanted to be doing THAT job and so started my long love afair with photography. I have been both a photojournalist and a portrait photographer and sometimes an artistic hybrid of both. Photography is one of those careers where learning and evolving never seem to stop and technology is always offering some new avenue of artistic expression. I try to embrace everything photography has to offer from the old school wet darkroom to the latest digital techniques, I am not a purest at all, I'll use any technique available to create the visual stories that move me.

My Diamond Print Case 2017

A Diamond print case is all four images accepted into the PPA's International Print Competition General Collection, a very difficult thing to accomplish but on top of that, all four images also accepted into PPA's International Loan Collection, a selection of the best of the best from all over the world, another very very difficult thing to accomplish.  Only once, in all my years of competing have I come close to a Diamond print case and in the end, I painfully fell short by one.  I couldn't be more proud and excited for this achievement, it represents years of hard work and perseverence.  

And now, the challenge is to see if perfection can be attained TWICE!

Today we start a new journey

Today I am taking the first steps in this new journey, creating a new look, going in a new direction and renewing a passion for this life long pursuit of photographic expression. I am learning to listen to that inner voice, to put aside the fear of failure and just take the step of faith. Lord, forgive my lack of faith in you and myself and take this as my first step in obedience. I pray that these new and future images draw all hearts to yours.
