Thanks for visiting my fine art photography collection - I hope you are enjoying my images.

I am originally from Erie, PA and St. Catharines, Ontario, Canada. I have pursued photography since the early 1980's and became more serious about it in 2006 when I entered my first competition and won a 2nd-place prize. Since then, I have entered my works regularly in photo contests and exhibits. Several of my photographs have earned awards in competitions and I am honored that my works are displayed in the homes and offices of family, friends and buyers at exhibits.

My photographs celebrates the joy of vivid color, the sensation of patterns or textures, and the visual interest of abstracts created by reflections, close-ups or motion. While my subjects may be bold and colorful, I favor clean, simple compositions. Much of my work is inspired by my travels within and outside the US..

"Out of the Corner of My Eye" refers to my reliance on peripheral vision to frame and compose my images. In 2007, I was diagnosed with macular degeneration which has caused me progressive vision loss over time. I have been legally blind since 2012.
