I've always been interested in photography and being creative. I received my first 35mm camera in high school, taking photos for our yearbook. After high school I studied at the University of Michigan, majoring in Interior Design, but minored in Photography, Art History and Graphic Design. In college I discovered the joys of the darkroom and learning the techniques of processing and printing. I've always loved those activities almost as much as the image capture. I also learned the 'pure' photography methods, but also was encouraged to try the 'anything goes' methodology and I gravitated to the latter.
After college I was busy with family and pursuing my profession, but I always saw potential images in everything I did and in day to day life. Over the last several years, I discovered the convenience and nuances of digital photography and Photoshop is the darkroom of today. It has totally reawakened my love of photography and that with a personal tragedy in my life has fueled me to pursue images.I look for the beauty of the everyday items and the environment that is around us all.
After I find my images, I do use Photoshop, as I used to use the darkroom, to manipulate the image. I do create images that are different on many levels and in some cases become totally abstract. I am of the 'anything goes' school. My photography and creativity feed my soul.
