Artist Statement

I bought a Pentax K1000 camera in my late teens and my love of photography begins there. Over the years I’ve embraced digital technology and photographic art is now my passion.  Retiring recently and living near the Pacific Coast in Oceanside California offers opportunities to shoot amazing images on land and sea.

I’ve shown and sold copies of my photographic artwork at various locations in San Diego County including the SpringHill Suites Marriott, Masters Kitchen and Cocktail, Holme Estate Cellars, Oceanside Days of Art, First Friday Art Walk in Oceanside and Artist Alley Oceanside.  A variety of my prints decorate the historic Century 21 building on Mission Ave in downtown Oceanside.

I like to print on metal, canvas, acrylic and fine photographic paper. Using different framing techniques and image sizes, I produce artwork that appeals to many tastes.  I’m also on the First Friday Art Walk board of directors where we encourage and support local artists with a dynamic artwork exhibit.
