My Art creates a world of extremes expressed through a dialogue of color and motion. Being a self-taught artist my skills have been refined through years of dedication and experimentation. I have always had a passion for devising techniques using photography innovatively. My art takes full advantage of the expressive opportunities digital art offers today’s creative photographer. Melding the techniques of classic photography with the exploding new frontier of digital imagery into a medium I call interpretative photography. A medium, which pushes photography in an exciting new direction, one that defies, rules and ignores limitations. The medium result has been called “Interpretive Photography.”
I am a graduate of Adelphi University with a BA and MA in humanities. I have worked in the field of education and photography for over 40 years concentrating on science, technology and nearly every segment of photography.

In 2014 I was head Judge for the Nassau County Comptrollers Office Art and Photography Exhibition. I won Best in Show at the Hutchins Gallery, Brookville, Wounded Warriors Benefit. In November 2013 I was feature artist in the CSA Journal.
