."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. 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.
