."Evocative, great color saturation, painterly, reflective, romantic, private, intriguing, a knack for lyrical composition. National Geographic has nothing on you" -- are comments from clients and viewers.
My fine art photography portfolio includes images from travels in the USA, Canada, Europe, Asia, and Australia. I apply a prize-winning impressionistic digital process for color images captured especially in Provincial France and Tuscany. The result, many insist, show a brushstroke technique that conveys a more abstract, romantic feeling. This effect works well not only on paper, but also on canvas formats. My black and white images show a higher contrast than the standard approach.
Photography has been a lifelong passion that I've combined with my major in Economics at Muhlenberg College. Digital technology has been a miracle for me--I'm enjoying an unexpected career in art communication because of it.
A native of Lansford, Pennsylvania, I devoted my career of over 25 years in the Lehigh Valley in the fields of corporate and consulting in public relations, publishing, and marketing administrative positions at Mack Trucks, Inc. World Headquarters, Eastern PA Business Journal, Lehigh Valley Magazine. Academic experience includes ten years of lecturing in management topics at Lehigh University and Cedar Crest College.
