My seascapes, landscapes, cityscapes, and fine art photography express a sense of historical narrative, but with the strength of abstract compositions.
My images convey my love of life, history, and the great outdoors, from my native Texas to my current home in Windham, New Hampshire. Photographing the world around me, I invite the viewer to look both at open spaces on the wide horizon and at the intimate textures of revealing details.
After serving 23 years on active duty in the U.S. Air Force, I decided to take my photographic skills as a hobbyist to the next level. With the help of the GI Bill, I headed back to school part-time and full-time for the next 7 years.
I am a 2009 graduate of the Center for Digital Imaging Arts at Boston University. I have since studied graphic design at UMass Lowell and studio arts at Middlesex Community College. My work is displayed in the Loading Dock Gallery in Lowell, MA, The Art League of Lowell in Lowell, MA, the Wild Salamander Creative Arts Center in Hollis, NH, Frameworks in Burlington, MA and at Creative Framing Solutions in Manchester, NH.
Photography is a passion for me. I enjoy the process involved in scouting out new locations to photograph as well as the quiet moments listening to music on my iPhone while waiting for the right light to cascade over my subject. "The world moves so quickly. An artfully made photograph is an invitation to stop, to see, to connect with what is there in front of us."
