My journey as an artist started as an escape from the stress of parenting an autistic child. Working with the landscape I found a way to express my emotions that had no other outlet. In time I started photographing my son. Now I use my camera to engage, not evade life.

In keeping with the much more personal approach to my photography I now print my work as photogravures. This process is very hands on. While the end result is not as sharp or perfect as other printing processes they have a real texture and emotional presence that matches my photographic style brilliantly.

I have been very fortunate to have been recognized as a category winner in the IPA awards and as a finalist in the Px3 awards and Critical Mass. My work has been exhibited in numerous group shows. In 2013 my series Waiting for Griffin was part of the Blue Sky Drawers program. My first solo show exhibiting Waiting for Griffin will be at Newspace Center of Photography in December of 2014.

I am a self educated photographer and printmaker having studied with Doug BeasleySusan BurnstineDan WeldonLauren HenkinKirsten Rian, and Don Messec.
