My photography and artwork is an escape from life's controls and constraints, allowing me the freedom to create unique images, even with my colorblindness. My work includes photography, abstract acrylic paint pours, digital image creations, and wood working. My work is the interpretation of my exploration of the world, and of life, influenced by my past, my present, my emotions, plus the world around me.
With my photography, I focus on capturing the world around me while I also try to live in that moment. My final images are what I see and feel in the world even though they may not be what I captured at the time.
Even though I do multiple genres of photography and photograph whatever captures my eye at the moment, my images are mostly centered around creative photography.
My abstract acrylic painting pours are an expression of life; even when we try to control the elements around us, we never know how life is going to change unexpectedly. With my paintings, I can control the colors I use and how I add them to the canvas, but the outcome always surprises. Most of the time a beautiful creation is made, but as in life, sometimes something not that great is created but that is still unique.
Every year I put out a 12"x24" calendar of my photography and artwork. These calendars are printed on a heavy stock quality paper and the images can framed. There is a special holiday listed on every day of the year, along with all the major holidays, plus astronomical events and the phases of the moon.
Below are links to my galleries'. Most of my landscapes and images are available for purchase on the following paper.
Pearl - Fine Art archival prints
Satin - Standard non-archival prints

Portraits are a captured moment in time, a memory to be shared with others for generations. Sometimes all you want is a snapshot of an event, of that memory, that you can put into a photo album to share with others or to take you back in time. That is the power of photography.
Landscape photography, for me, is not about planning, except to plan to go somewhere. For me it is about luck. I feel lucky that I can go experience new places, or the same place over and over. I am lucky if the weather is the way I want it to be when I get there, but sometimes I am lucky because it is not.
Landscape photography is finding that place in outside the city, or even downtown, that others just pass by without a second thought, or capturing that same place as everyone else but at a different angle.
Landscape photography is about capturing something unique and sharing it with others.
Technology is no longer a part of our world, it has become our world; we just don't realize just how much it has taken over our lives and how it will never go away.
The World of Technology series is about how technology has become such a part of our world that we don't really see how much it is integrated into our life, how it has become our life.
Noun: art that does not attempt to represent external reality, but seeks to achieve its effect using shapes, forms, colors, and textures.
I think everyone looks at abstract art differently and what they see is affected by the events in their life.
My abstract acrylic painting pours are an expression of life; even when we try to control the elements around us, we never know how life is going to change unexpectedly. With my paintings, I can control the colors I use, how I add them to the canvas, and when I stop the process, but the outcome is always a surprise. Most of the time a beautiful creation is made, but as in life, sometimes something not that great is created but that is still unique.
