During a 30-year career as a commercial photographer in Seattle, I developed my artwork mostly for my own interest. Sometimes the two overlapped--an annual report illustration was the genesis of my interest in the altered Polaroid ('Seattle Cafe'). As I traveled the world on jobs and on my own--once spending 6 months touring Europe on motorcycle--I used the Polaroid medium to capture the gorgeous places I visited. Note that this work was done entirely by hand, using small tools, including dental tools, to move the Polaroid inks before they set. No computer manipulation was used.
Please check back often for more images. I'll be adding more Polaroids from my collection as well as portraits from around the world and images of roses and 'leaves and twigs' in another medium I've explored--scanography.
Now that I have retired from commercial work, I'm focusing exclusively on my art pieces. I'm delighted to be part of fineartamerica.com, where you can order my work in any size or form you desire. Please write to me if you'd like to--I'd love to hear from you.
