Several of those many years in college (eons ago) were spent seriously studying fine art and particularly photography. Okay, as much as I "seriously" studied anything, that is.

I was fortunate to have two extraordinary mentors, the late G. Roy Levin, who taught me an appreciation for documentary and "untainted" images, and Dicran Derderian, who encouraged me in his unique and scary way to make all this FUN.

Unfortunately, for quite a few years after college while I was seriously working--this time literally "seriously"--in a field having nothing to do with fine art, I made images that no one saw but me and no one enjoyed or appreciated but me. In the past several years, however, I began first to show some things informally, then in a number of organized exhibits. Now I'm showing with some frequency as I've begun to network with other artists locally and nationally. The internet has been another fun way to expose my photography to the public, and I appreciate and enjoy the feedback sites such as this one bring.

My studio work is done in a space in Mt. Pleasant, SC. I am currently a member of the Community of I'On Artists (affectionately known as the "CIA") and an exhibiting member of the Charleston Artists Guild. Images may be seen in their exhibits from time to time. I work primarily in digital media; some traditional silver images (film and paper) on occasion. My prints are made on an Epson Stylus Professional 3800 and in most cases printed on Lexjet or Moab paper. Prints can be made on canvas by special arrangement. I enjoy opportunities to do custom work for a particular space or idea. Please contact me directly for this.

Thanks for visiting this space. Please leave a comment to let me know what you see that you like or don't like, and feel free to sign the guestbook below. New images will appear from time to time, so come back again soon.

The level of improvement in this field depends mostly on the hard work and the creativity of the person behind the camera and not just how bigger and better the equipment would be. The sooner the people understands it, the better. http://www.qspray.com
