If I had to describe myself with one word it would be artist - a visual artist and an artist with words. My artwork is included in Ohio Online Visual Arts Registry. I'm working with various galleries in the Midwest to promote my oil paintings and abstract light photography.

 About these images:

My Light Study series requires the low angled sun of winter. Spring is coming and the angle of natural sunlight that I need is gone for this photo season. Sorting through I have found four more images from this winter season to add to Fine Art Photography. The image shown above is Light Study DSCN0491

Now to painting, then soon to travel. Recently I have been painting more oils on canvas. Fog Bank was ready to photograph and is shown above. Two more are drying horizontally and will be photographed when they are ready to go to vertical.

Activities in the arts

My studio is located at the Sharonville Cultural Arts Center near my home on the north side of metro Cincinnati. The focus from the media always seems to be on Over the Rhine (OTR) artists downtown. I made a suggestion to the SCAC board: a competition and exhibition in their Westheimer Gallery to promote artists who live north of Cross County Highway. They liked the idea so I volunteered to help as the curatorial assistant to the board. Next exhibition will be Landscapes: Illustrated and Imagine selected from Art North 2017 artists we invited to participate. Opening is March 16, 2018. The exhibition will continue to April 28.
