I started photographing back in the early 70's at the Art Center known as the Society of Arts and Crafts, later known as CCS. My photography has its beginnings in Detroit. As my life advances, the photographs I have created take on a variation of emotions and stories. Things I photographed in the 70s continue to amaze my vision. I have come to accept the camera more as a sketch book with a variety of pencils. As a painter would work out the details to a final creation of a master work in sketches, I use several cameras to explore the opportunities of what I am developing as a vision and creative statement. What opportunities the digital world has given to the creative mind for visual exploration! My camera is no different from staring out into the universe...infinite imagination stares back at you...the digital camera. ...I have found the black hole of creativity I could not be any more excited. The camera gives me purpose in my life. My work hangs in many private collections and i received a 3rd place in Photo Spiva in Joplin Mo. in 2016 the oldest running Photo competition in the U.S.
