I didn’t start out to be an artist.
Engineering has been my career. Photography has been my passion. I got my first camera when I was about 12 and never really stopped taking photographs. My education and experience has been as a civil engineer. it down. I’ve gotten into the habit of carrying a camera with me, wherever I go. When something catches my eye, I photograph it. I’ve discovered that I have a good eye, and a great imagination. My goal is to take photo’s that folks look at and say “That’s a cool shot.”
I photograph what I see, and it took me years to realize that I most folks didn’t see what I saw. The photo’s of mine are representative of the different photographic interests of mine. I favor nature and the outdoors of Northern California. I live in Northern California, and I’m always looking for a new road or a new area to explore. The abstracts are the product of my mind modifying what my eye sees.
I’m a member of the BlackHawk Gallery in Danville, the Gallery at Marina Square in Morro Bay, the Oli Gallery in Guerneville and the Vacaville Art Gallery. My work has been exhibited in about a dozen galleries all around northern California and included in several KVIE Public Television auctions. The City of Vacaville has purchased my art as part of their Permanent Art Collection.
