Primarily I'm an artist/illustrator but have used photography as a tool for my paintings, illustrations and graphic designs throughout my career. While recovering from Non-Hodgkins Lympoma, I found it difficutl to sit and paint for any length of time. I began to take pictures and my camera images became my works of art. I first began capturing images in and around my home and later took short trips in the surrounding counties in middle Tennessee and eventually further as I grow stronger. I enjoy a variety of subjects which includes rural and urban landscapes, nature scenes with a touch of humanity, and even abstract photographic images. What I like best about contemporary photography is its similarity to painting today - no set of rules. Rules simply are not nessasary with the exception of balance and composition. It is my goal to invite the viewer into my space and enjoy the story I am telling with my work. So with that, please look and enjoy my variety of works . Feel free to "Friend" me on Facebook or follow me on Twitter and discuss the world of art together. I'd love to hear from you.
