I was born and raised in Alaska in the 1950s and 60s. It was a sheltered existence, abundantly rich in natural beauty but sorely lacking in cultural and artistic opportunities. I left at 17, travelled the world at 21, eventually raised a family, and have always been a Creative. I've lived on both coasts, in the north and the south, and currently live and create my art in Carlsbad, California in the United States.
I consider myself a photographic artist rather than a straightforward photographer. I especially like to create abstract and impressionistic images, often shooting odd subjects like cracked pavement; curling tree bark; or rusty metal, morphing the images into things I didn't imagine when taking the shot. The art emerges as I work.
I am currently experimenting with intentional camera movement, and a series I call "Imagination."
