I am a life-long artist in many media: photography, watercolor, clay, words, music, food, and computer interfaces, to name the more prominent ones. Since 1990, I have lived on Cape Ann, where I have been fortunate to absorb arts knowledge from local artists and master teachers, including Betty Lou Schlemm and Martin Ahearn.

I have taken photographs since the age of 8. Wherever else my interests have strayed, my camera has been a constant companion. A curious observer of what is around me, I photograph the art in my surroundings: the form, line, value, and abstract design qualities within the scenes of everyday life. My greatest pleasure lies in recording the wonderful found compositions that surround us.

Bio

My formal education and career concerned how people learn and, knowing that, how to make computers more comprehensible for normal people to use. In the early 1990s, that specialty became of less interest to the computer industry. From then on, I chose to explore the arts rather than continue with my prior work.

I am a member of Cambridge Art Association, Newburyport Art Association (photo interest group), and a photography member of the Rockport Art Association. While I was a member of Local Colors Gallery in Gloucester MA, I had solo shows there in ceramics and in watercolors. I have several photographs of racing yachts on permanent display at the Mystic Seaport Museum. My work is in many private collections on several continents.

Note

My prints are from digital images, printed with archival inks on glossy paper. The framing uses conservation quality materials.
