I've always had a passion for digital photography since it’s inception and have played with digital cameras off and on since the mid 90’s. I have also always lived within 5 miles of a beach my entire life and about 6 years ago I started taking advantage of that availability and started going to the beach every morning for a run and was amazed at how different the sky looked every morning, before , during and after sunrise. I started snapping shots with just my phone camera (they are quiet convenient and light).
I’ve been a painting contractor for 30yrs with an emphasis in decorative painting. One day while having a conversation with my daughter, she told me to pursue my passion for photography. I started playing around with my love of photography and my skills as a painter/carpenter and started creating both abstract paintings and photographic creations and found myself falling in love with what I had created. I have created some memorable pieces that my clients have purchased and talk about on my business page. People tell me they love my pictures and they are amazing and sometimes mistake them for paintings, which is a big compliment to me. I enjoy hearing people mistake my photography for paintings and have since had customers comment it’s my signature. I'm grateful that so many people love my art and I look forward to doing this for a long time. I enjoy creating for my clients and future clients and I am again humbled to call myself an artist.
