About My Work:
I don't make photographs of subjects--say, a photo of a bird or a building. Instead, I work in specific outdoor conditions, to produce compositions in colors that are natural to the scene. 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'm a pretty adventurous type. 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 sojourns are included in the Best Sellers gallery and more are to come. 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, the Earth, and the natural world 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.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping you with any questions or concerns you might have. Please use the contact form to get in touch; you will generally hear from me before the end of the day.
Again, thanks for your patronage.
