My life began in the town of Seaford, New York. After many moves following an earlier career path, my home was in Mill Valley, California, for nine years and currently I am staying in Mendocino, CA.
My pursuit of photography and art was mainly on hiatus while I pursued careers in advertising as an account executive and then in Hollywood as a makeup artist. However, my camera went with me to work locations in New Zealand, Australia, Brazil and Canada and personal travel in Europe. But it was at a casual level that I shot images catching my attention.
In 2005, time opened and I began pursuing photography with intensity, purpose, and renewed passion. I am represented by Spindrift Gallery in Gualala, CA. My work is on line at galleries and my website. And my images have been submitted in fine art competitions. Recently, I was an artist in residence at Mendocino Art Center and my work is shown at the Mendocino Art Gallery .
