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.  Starting in December I have been able to add to my Fanta-Seas series, the Energies series, and a new Dancing among the Stars series. Eight new images from the Fanta-Seas series images have been added to Fine Art Photography. Sunshine forecast for tomorrow so the journey of discovery continues into 2018.

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 and the project has kept me busy for months. Opening Reception and Awards Ceremony was Friday, November 17 with a good sized crowd attending. The exhibition continues through January 20, 2018. This regional competition introduced me to 26 wonderful artists producing quality art work. Now I want to return to my studio soon to paint.
