I received my MFA in photography from the University of Illinois in 1982. Visual problems kept me from shooting between the 1987 and 2012, when new surgical techniques restored my sight in one eye. Colors, which appeared dull and lifeless were now vivid and bright, and are an important part of my practice. Now I am back at work. My photographs have appeared in museums around the world and in the book, Second Sight: An Aesthetic, Technical, and Historical Exploration of Infrared Photography. Pictures from my portfolio, The Edge of Vision, were shown at Review Santa Fe in October 2017 and were featured in the Washington Post in November 2017. In December 2020, Shadows and Acts was named one of the best photo exhibits of the year by the DC City Paper , which also profiled my aesthetic vision in February. I am a member of Studio Gallery in Washington, DC.
