I have been photographing nature for over 30 years, traveling all over the United States, Canada and parts of Europe. Regardless of where I go I always finds something new, unique or breathtaking to photograph. I believe that no one can get tired of what Mother Nature offers. As Vincent Van Gogh said, “Keep your love of nature, for that is the true way to understand art more and more.” I started out photographing nature in its pure form, or as I like to call it, the visions of Mother Nature. I did this for a number of years, but I decided to experiment with enhancing nature’s colors to see what the possibilities would be. What I did find out is that in doing this you go from photographing nature to creating art. I have had some success with my photography. One of my photos was recognized by David Y. Lee of National Geographic as an editor’s favorite. I was part of a 3-artist, month long exhibit at the Compassion Factory Gallery in Brookfield, IL. I was part of an exhibit at the Peabody Mansion at Mayslake in Oakbrook. And I have been exhibiting pieces at the La Grange Art League since being juried in, in December of 2019. My work continues to evolve and I am looking forward to where my vision will take me.
