I am a digital photographer living in Shoreview, a suburb of St Paul, Minnesota in the US. I also have a second home in Vancouver, BC Canada. My work has been exhibited in a number of local galleries and shows and published in the Minneapolis StarTribune newspaper. I have won several local and two national contests with my photographs. My specialties are nature photos, particularly close-ups of flowers, landscapes, architectural details and travel scenes. I have thousands of photos in my portfolio and take commissions. I love bright colors but also enjoy working in black and white. I am Vice President of the board of a non-profits arts organization called Gallery 96 which highlights art in a variety of media by artists in the northern St Paul MN suburbs. I am also a resident member of the AZ Gallery in the Lowertown neighborhood of St Paul.
