Statement and CV

The combination of exploration and discovery is at the core of what inspires my photography.

While studying advertising and design at Pratt Institute, my coursework also introduced me to photography. Upon graduating with a BFA in 1975 I embarked on a career in graphic design working with various studios and then for 32 years in my own practice. During this time my interest in photography continued and eventually became the medium of choice for my personal work. In exploring subjects ranging from urban and industrial to rural backroads communities I generally work in a thematic approach. Since 2005 I have exhibited in solo as well as national and regional juried group shows at galleries, art centers and alternative venues. My work is included in private collections.
