Bio:

A native of New Jersey, I received a BA in fine arts at Montclair State and a MFA degree from Pratt Institute. From 1970–2004, I pursued a career in art education. In the course of that time, I taught and supervised the fine arts programs in two New Jersey school districts. Since leaving the teaching profession, I have been actively showing my work in a variety of group shows at galleries and museums in Connecticut, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware. In 2007 I received the von Holtzbrinck Coexistence Award for my entry in the New Brunswick Exhibition Coexistence and I was also selected as JerseyArts.com's featured artist of the month. In 2013 my entry to New York Center for Photographic Art’s international exhibit Water, received an honorable mention, and in 2014 and 2015 my entries into The Photo Review’s International Photo Competition were selected for inclusion in a special Web exhibition.

Statement:

The beauty and complexity of our world, both natural and man made, is always in our view; often overlooked; waiting to be discovered. Photography is my medium of choice, not because of its ability to capture the moment, but because of its ability to capture the unexpected. It offers one a chance to re-examine images and discover aspects of a subject that may not have been evident at the time an image was first captured. It allows me the opportunity to remove myself from the moment; to become an observer rather than a participant; that is, to view the image from a different perspective or to see things in a different light. For me, the creative process is often just beginning with the click of the shutter.
