I have always been an artist. I started out by taking photographs when a young child with a box camera on our Colorado ranch in the 60's. I wanted to capture the world so others could see the joy and wonder that I saw, and in my excitement, it didn't always happen that way. I have struggled to present my view of the world ever since, for over 40 years. I have mastered many types of photography and if you can name it, I have probably taken images of it, including events, real estate,portraits, scenery, architecture, street scenes, commercial products, weddings and much more. It was and is a constant quest to bring wonder to the eyes of the world. To my delight, I discovered Photoshop about 12 years ago and have been transforming my images (and images of others) into works of art that more closely reflected what I was experiencing. I endeavor to bring out the 'essence-spirit-soul' of a piece for an emotional impact on the viewer. For me my art is constantly evolving, searching for new expressions, venues and methods. I hope always to be learning and changing to reflect the world and to bring to others the brighter side of it.
