I started in photography 1973. Some of my earliest influences were Adams, Weston, Arbus and Winogrand. This admiration led me to concentrate as much on craft as well as concept. I have produced a wide spectrum of work including traditional landscapes, urban landscapes, still lifes, polaroid art and conceptual series. I have shown my photographic work in many group and one person shows.
I have taught photography at Lower Columbia College in Longview, WA and have taught traditional photography and photopolymer gravure workshops.
I served on the initial board of directors for Newspace Center for Photography in Portland OR, along with founder Chris Bennett, members Alexis Pike, Christine Eagon and Jake Shivery.
I recently retired as the Fine Arts Tech at Washington State University in Vancouver WA where I specialized in teaching photography and printmaking. I currently reside in Redmond, Oregon.
