“Classic Calla” photography, various sizes

 

As a youngster I always wanted to be involved in the creative arts—my first dream was to be an architect.

Other interests and pursuits put that on hold and a professional life in the health care world took the front row, as did a life as a college professor building and chairing a health care administration program, although I still made time to take photographs. The college campus provided a rich locus for photography, with wonderful scenery and great athletic event opportunities.

“Grand Tetons at Sunset” photography, various sizes

 

At “retirement” (I dislike the word), I decided to pursue what I felt was an artistic gift.

“Columbine” photography, various sizes

 

I began three years of private study in oil painting. I had already been taking photographs since the age of ten, but the idea of trying a new artistic and creative medium was appealing.

“Stark Tree, Sedona” photography, various sizes

 

I believed it would improve my photographic work and train my eye in both composition and subject. And I was right! The study of painting has helped how and what I see enormously through the lens of my camera.

My photographic work is still my primary interest, and I work with a full range of subjects from florals to landscapes to architecture and to portraits and human interest.

“The Conversation” photography, various sizes

 

While color has a magical appeal—and I enjoy strong colors—the keys to good fine art photography are composition and a subject that invites the viewer to pause, to question or to be moved by a “story” that can be found in a living image.

“Snow on Tree Line” photography, various sizes

 

The images I share here with you are just that—a sample of the wide range of interests and stories that inspire me, help me really “see” the beauty of this universe and remind me to feel grateful for the many simple and beautiful gifts we have in our lives each day.

“Wyoming Milk” photography, various sizes

 

While the COVID virus delayed much of my travels, and even halted my work at the easel, I have awakened to a new chapter which I’m delighted to share with friends and viewers.

I welcome feedback and any constructive observations. That helps me grow. Wishing you all the eyes to see the creative opportunities that lay before us. All the best for allowing your gifts to bring you inner peace and wonderful messages to your audiences.
