My fine art photography career got serious in 2002 using high-end digital cameras, video cameras, and my iPhone which is always close by. I love the freedom digital offers. I use the computer and apps to enrich my images and give them new identities. My distinctive work has won many top awards at leading juried contests in Wisconsin, including The Hidden River Art Festival Eddy Award (2012), several Cedarburg Art Museum (2014, 2015, 2016) Ozaukee Annual Juried Exhibition (2016) and The Milwaukee Intercontinental Hotel (2016).
I first picked up a camera at age 11 in 1968, using traditional photographic film and darkroom processes. My passion for photography was ignited; I have owned and operated Pro Studio Supply for photographers since 1988 and continue my fine art career in Martin County.
I’ve been teaching iPhone Photo Workshops since 2008. I was asked by the University of Wisconsin Extension, to start their first iPhone workshops. My class sizes ranged from six 25 attendees. I then started teaching to several garden clubs with almost 100 attendees. I now teach small and large groups in and around the Florida Treasure Coast.
