Body Shard I


I have been a dedicated photographer for all of my adult life, and began my serious exploration of fine art photographic image-making in late 1980's.

I studied at the Maryland Institute College of Art and the Maine Photographic Workshops. I presented several one-man shows in Baltimore in early 1990's. I was away from image-making for several "dot-com" years.

I returned to active pursuit of image making with a one-man show entitled Fantastical Impressions at Jackson Artworks in Omaha, Nebraska in August of 2004. That 70-image exhibition was a retrospective that covered approximately 15 years of my work.

I continue to expand my series entitled "Clothed in Light." If you are a gallery owner, and are interested in the Clothed in Light concept and series, please contact me about representation. If you are a model and would like to appear in the series, please contact me. If you are a publisher, please contact me about my concept for a Clothed in Light book.

In addition to Clothed in Light, I am working on a new series of complex, multi-layered, dream-like images.
