Seattle based photographer specializing in creating fine art photographic images.
Born and raised in St. Louis Missouri, my mother had a keen interest in music, ceramics, arts & crafts; I showed interest in the arts at an early age. My interest in photography took root, largely because my high school offered a photography class at a local black & white photographic lab. I eventually worked at this lab developing prints and experimenting with the darkroom process.
I spent the next 25 years perfecting my skills working in various high end photographic labs in both St. Louis, Missouri and Seattle, Washington. I developed film, created negatives from images and slides, printed small photographs to large murals, restored photographs, worked one on one with clients and lead various team projects. Clients at these various labs included, Starbucks, Nike, The Gap, Eddie Bauer, The American Institute of Architects, Boeing, Seattle Times, and many professional photographers.
Although I appreciate the purest techniques, with the advent of digital photography in the 1990’s I wrapped my arms around the digital process exploring and experimenting with digital manipulation techniques.
I am inspired by colors and textures; focusing on bringing these details to life through my images.
