I am a retired high school teacher with a life-long interest in writing (poetry) and a more recent love of fine art photography and digital art.
My photography highlights the natural beauty of the seasons, especially amidst the rolling hills and waterways of western New York. Wandering the creeks near my home, standing beneath a small cascade or majestic waterfall, being truly present to the changes of season, delighting in the beauty of flowers and woodlands carried me along on what became a profound spiritual journey in a way that words alone could not contain. So it is, almost by accident, that I became an artist too.
Now, I have converted both those loves into digital paintings in an impressionist style that express what I see with the heart more than with the eye. I added to that the metaphor of the spiritual journey in my Sea Stories paintings - a visual metaphor for our personal quest for character, courage and truth. Contemporary, yet timeless, my digital paintings are modern realism but with homage to the classic works. In addition to my current art work, I have two self-published volumes of poetry, 'Songs of the Heart's Longing' from Blurb publishing and 'Ecclesiastes for Sixty: Seasons in Solitude' from Xlibris. Both volumes contain my own original art and photography to accompany my contemporary style poetry.
May 1, 2013 - The artwork entitled 'All That Remains' won 1st place in the Photography/Digital Art Category and 3rd place overall in the SeaScapes competition (from among nearly 700 entries). This is a juried art competition by the prestigious online gallery Light, Space & Time.
