At three I began working in my father’s home photo studio to keep company with him, and I worked in the studio until I graduated high school. After my Freshman year in a Liberal Arts College, I transferred to the Memphis Academy of Arts, majoring in sculpture. After graduating, the following year was spent working on several sculpture commissions. Later, the pursuit of engineering a monumental public sculpture led me to Virginia Tech where I was offered a scholarship in The College of Architecture -there I taught introductory photography.
Now printing and creating new imagery, the several media I use help translate my expression in different ways - my favorite being photogravure, followed by Pt/Pd, an expensive process. It just depends on the image and what one is trying to get out of the printed piece - sometimes silver-gel or other process is the best choice for the print.
