Born, raised, schooled, and loved in Connecticut for more than 60 years. I graduated from Fairfield University with an associates degree in graphic arts.
At the age of six, my parents gave me my first camera; a square box film camera, and so it all began... I have had a camera of some sort ever since. In 2001 I purchased my first digital SLR camera. This opened up a new world for me, allowing me exploration on many more levels.
Largely self-taught, I rely on an art sense rather than photographic technical skill. For my digital manipulations I use a combination of Photoshop, Illustrator, and layers of textural images I have shot. This makes for complex, data-heavy files, and yet at the same time a wonderful challenge.
I live in Redding with my dear spouse Edward of 3-plus decades, two amazing dogs, two very determined goats, a flock of 13 hens and one exceedingly happy rooster!
When not making a living in graphic arts, shooting art, or sleeping, I am hiking, kayaking, camping, swimming, or just enjoy being out in nature.
