After raising a family and retirement from a career in business, I had an itch to pursue my artistic interests. That led me to several years of part-time college photography studies in Southern California.
My interests are varied and that is reflected in the range of my photographic subjects and editing styles. I am equally drawn to subjects from international volunteer work and other travel as well as to subjects in my backyard. The goal with my photographs of landscapes, architecture, flora, fauna, etcetera, is primarily to capture beauty and elicit interest in things as they are and perhaps as they are imagined. Characterizing my photographs of people is at times less clear. I often still attempt to capture beauty but perhaps more important is an attempt to convey an understanding of the subjects through their expressions, their surroundings and sometimes their wrinkles.
My wife and I returned to our home state of Missouri in 2009 and now divide our time between there and California. I am a member of the Columbia (Missouri) Art League and have exhibited in California and Missouri.
