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 this image:

While drinking my coffee on Saturday morning, I noticed that the light had begun to move to the low angle I like for my Light Studies. I also saw the roses I had trimmed before the expected overnight frost. Hmmm..what if? So I moved things around to try some shots. Then I placed the rose-filled vases in the light, or near it and started taking photographs. I love the process of working with the light. I am pretty pleased with some of the images that can be seen under the Fine Art Photography tab.
