Photo Artist, Houston, TX
As a musician, former music teacher and author of a piano method book (Chord Piano Is Fun), music had always been my first love. However, during a trip to Europe on my 50th birthday, I got the photography fever. Having taken several thousand photos during this trip, my friend encouraged me to "do something!" with my photography. This was the start of a new love and and began my quest of becoming a professional photographer.
My photography is the "canvas" for my artwork. I love to create unique works of art with each photo that I take, whether it be HDR (High Dynamic Range), or with textures and filters. I want to people to be moved by my art and to be able to "feel" each image through their eyes.
I love capturing the beauty of nature -- from magnificent landscapes to the tiniest of creatures. Whether I am strolling through my garden or peering through the window of an airplane, I am in awe of what I see. Despite the world being filled with hate, loneliness and despair, it contains far more beauty and delight. When I take in all that exists in this natural world, I get lost in it -- and I see that God smiles.
May God bless you today!
