Photography has been the medium by which I’ve viewed the world for the last 48 or so years, through marriage 6 beautiful children, two different professions, and many hospitalizations. It has been a shield in troubled times, a weapon, and a friend. Photography has allowed me to mature and grow as a person in a safe place. Through the images I create, they really show my journey and hopefully you can see my strengths, my weaknesses. Hopefully you see joy and pain when and where I feel it but I really hope that those that view my photographs can see their own interpretation and viewpoint. I hope that the viewer becomes a participant and is able to tell me something about the photograph, I hope that we share something through the photo.
