About My Work:
Our world is rapidly changing, and I think it's critical to capture it as it is. Generally, I strive for the journalistic approach; I present what the piece of land looks like. Only occasionally do I work with heightening or altering effects.
I don't make photographs of subjects--say, a photo of a bird or a building. Instead, I make compositions, taking pictures only in certain natural lighting conditions to get the best natural color effects.
I've been to six foreign countries and nearly every state. In April, I took off on a 3,500-mile odyssey to the American Southwest and returned to New Mexico in July. Some pictures from those trips are included in the Best Sellers gallery.
Now I live in Minnesota's Northland, blocks from Lake Superior, in part because the area has a lot of natural beauty.
I have been fascinated by landscape and the Earth since early childhood. I studied drawing, color and composition in my high school's art classes and in Saturday classes at The Art Institute of Chicago.
In grad school at Loyola University, Chicago, I followed my other passions, reading and writing, and focused in part on the history of the landscape genre in European art and literature.
I have been creating landscape photography since 2012, and will be offering my original art in addition to photographic prints.
