2nd Saturday Gallery Reception: August 13, 5 pm – 8 pm
My life began in the town of Seaford, New York. After many moves following earlier career paths and time spent as an artist in residence in Mendocino, my home is now in Petaluma, CA.
My pursuit of photography and art was mainly on hiatus while I pursued careers in advertising as an account executive and then in Hollywood as a makeup artist. However, my camera went with me to work locations in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and Canada and personal travel in Europe. But it was at a casual level that I shot images catching my attention.
In 2005, things opened and I began pursuing photography with intensity, purpose, and renewed passion. I am represented by Spindrift Gallery in Gualala, CA. My work is on line at galleries and my website. And my images have been submitted in fine art competitions. In 2015, I was an artist in residence at Mendocino Art Center. Online my photography has been/is on Zatista.com, One Kings Lane, Amazon Fine Art and Williams Sonoma.

Sky, water, sun, earth, trees and architectural form in the environment is the focus of all of my images. They represent and speak of the experience of space without external influence...just one's self. I explore form, shape, and color. This series is "Shades of Blue."
I am inspired by a quote written by Thich Nhat Hanh...
"Do not just look for what you want to see,
that would be futile.
Do not look for anything,
but allow the insight to have a chance to come by itself.
That insight will help liberate you."
"Come Out, Come Out"
