When I was six years old my Father gave me a K-mart brand 110 film camera before we headed out on vacation. I have been a Photographer ever since. I have made the journey from the film age to the digital age.
I began my college career pursuing an Associate’s degree in photography in 1987. While doing so I had images in shows through the college, and also had an image chosen for a calendar contest that was included in a published calendar.
Life’s journey changed, and while I never completely set fine art photography aside, I did not begin actively producing and showing fine art photos until the first decade of this century. The first juried show I gained entry to was through the City of Overland Park. This success inspired me to carry on, and I continued to enter images into shows and contests.
Galleries I have had images hang in are: The Box Gallery, The Jones Gallery, and Images Art Gallery.
I have won several awards at local shows for both black and white and color photography. A few notables are as follows:
In 2018 I was one of only two photographers chosen for the Ekphrasis project that was sponsored by The Box Gallery. This included being published in the Ekphrasis book.
In 2020 I was the winner of Images Art Gallery’s Plein Aire photographer’s event.
I have had images awarded first place in the Cass County Fair shows and the Blue Springs art show.
I strive to produce images that are not only pleasant to view, but also to convey a story or feeling. My goal is to invite someone to perceive something in a unique way and perhaps create their own story around the image and how it makes them feel.
