It seems that I’ve been interested in photography for most of my life. I developed my first photograph when I was 8 years old and have been involved ever since.  
In my early years, I developed my negatives and worked on my photographs in the darkroom. For three and a half decades, until 2006, I created all of my black and white images in that manner.  Now, I use the digital format.
Because of my love of the natural world and unfamiliar places, I’ve traveled extensively, photographing on five continents.  
I took part in many shows at the Cultural Center on Staten Island. In April of 2002, I was privileged to have my work accepted for the Life of the City Exhibition at The Museum of Modern Art in New York City.

At present, I am working with color and black and white using the digital format.  At times, I am also creating with a different process called Gel Transfer.  I print an image on specially treated plastic, which, in essence, is the equivalent of a negative.  I then manipulate the negative, pulling and pushing the ink to create the look that enhances the image.  Next, I prepare silkscreen paper with ethanol gel, so that the paper is ready to accept the ink.  I then place the image, which is still on the plastic, down onto the paper.  I transfer the image.  During this process, the “negative” is destroyed.  That is why each piece is an original.
My newest interest is in bead weaving.  I work with glass beads and natural stone cabochons of various sizes to create unique and one of a kind jewelry.
My work has been collected by patrons all over the United States, Europe and Canada.
I appreciate your interest in my work. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
