I started out as a writer and journalist, but photography captured me the moment I made my first black and white print. It was magic, and the excitement of interpreting the world through the lens continues today. I traded in my typewriter for a camera and became photographer and filmmaker.
My fine art photography uses form, color and light to explore subjects that touch me emotionally -- a particular scene, the play of light across a surface -- something that sparks a reaction and forms a strong image in my mind.
I often work in series, concentrating on one type of subject and working with different ways of visualizing it. Sometimes I see new pictures within my pictures or new relationships between images that lead me in a different creative direction.
My current passion is using the iPhone to create images with a heightened sense of immediacy, color and drama.
I am a member of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) and past President of ASMP's North Carolina Chapter, as well as a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA). My work has been widely shown and is in corporate and privatel collections, and I've been a member of the Roundabout Art Collective since it was founded in 2011.
