My primary focus (intentional pun) today is in photography. I have owned a camera since about age 8. I have made pictures for myself and others for most of my recollected life. As a younger artist I concentrated on drawing and printmaking. I worked in etchings, lithography, wood and linoleum cuts. In my middle years I was a watercolor painter primarily. As an old man, I still paint and make prints but photography has become my obsession and passion. I attempt to make every picture tell a story. Some are plainly obvious by virtue of the subject matter. In others, there are shadings of emotion and feelings that are connected to my psyche and in many cases to that of the viewer. I believe we are all connected in ways that aren't necessarily clear. Art can touch us and weave us together in ways that heal us. Please join me on my journey. You are most welcome here.
