I am an internationally published professional artist and fine art photographer with a lifetime of experience working in several media. Photography has been my only focus as far as production is concerned for the past fifteen years, although I still enjoy looking at painting, sculpture, and ceramics for ideas to apply to two dimensions. My composite images are largely an outgrowth of this ongoing fascination with all things visual. I am quite sure that my interests spill over into my headshots, portraits, and custom projects as well. I hold the following credentials:
Extensive education at the New York Institute of Photography
A Master of Fine Arts Degree (Studio Art)
A Bachelors Degree (Studio Art and Art History)
My work has been shown in over 90 exhibitions and galleries over a 45 year period
I have over 15 years of experience teaching Art full time at the university level and have served as Department Chairman at two institutions
I've honed my "people skills" through years of working with individuals and groups as a facilitator and workshop leader. You will find that our time together will be rewarding, self affirming, and revealing.
