I make art to entertain, engage, teach, and touch. I express my art through digital camera images and written books. A photograph is just an excuse to make up a funny title that gets a chuckle or smile. In a book, a picture helps bring the text alive. Through subject matter, composition, light, and color I hope to engage and teach the viewer or reader. My books are longhand versions of subjects that interest me. My photographs are the shorthand version of my books.
Life inspires me. I capture my life, your life, and the lives of others by taking pictures and writing in my journal. Life is what we make of it. What we make of it is the basis for storytelling through images and words.
My eye for lighting, beauty, color, and composition makes my pictures unique. My skills for researching, interviewing, writing, and editing make my books unique.
