I am an artist whose chosen mediums are photography and the written word. Each of my photographs represent a personal vision derived from an intimate knowledge of my subject, and my personal feelings when I created the image.
I believe that no photograph stands alone however, so with words I try to convey the emotional context of being there, so the viewer shares in the experience rather than sitting on the outside looking in. Both the photograph and the words are essential to the whole. Without this 'emotional' exchange, the photograph becomes a static moment in time, soon lost and forgotten among the hundreds of others that we are subjected to each and every day.
I live in Oklahoma. I have been creating photographs for more than 20 years, primarily in Oklahoma and Texas with occasional forays into New Mexico. My photographs have been published in Oklahoma magazines, and I have held gallery exhibitions throughout the region. My images grace the walls of private homes and businesses across the states of Oklahoma, Texas, and beyond.
