I grew up in West Islip, Long Island and have spent the last decade taking pictures in Boca Raton, Florida. When I was in my twenties, I took a darkroom course at the New School in New York City. That’s where my love for photography was born.
After a successful career in the publishing and media industry and raising my two children, I have rediscovered my passion four decades later. My friend taught me digital photography during a trip to Italy. As soon as I returned home, I signed up for classes at a local community center.
In light of the pandemic, I’ve switched to Zoom for weekly photo reviews with The Art of International Photography.
Photography is the lens through which I navigate and interpret the world. I consider myself a visual storyteller and take my camera with me everywhere (even if it annoys my family). I’m looking for captivating moments where I can capture stories in an image. I’m a pet sitter by day, which allows me to pursue my passion of photographing inspiring people with all the time I have available.
The heart of my work celebrates humanity. I constantly strive to connect with strangers, learn their stories, and appreciate their uniqueness in a photo.
As an avid traveler, I love to visit new places. I want to see how people live, celebrate, pray and just go about their daily lives. I especially love photographing cultural events, performance art, local festivals and pride parades. There I can capture the self-expression, love and power that is on display.
My goal is to share my vision with room for interpretation so viewers can create their own stories from their personal perspectives. I hope my art conveys the joyful elements of humanity and represents individuals with honesty and integrity. When my photographs can touch a viewer on a soulful, positive level, I’m happy.
Now I can pursue my craft and follow my dream of photographing fascinating people and scenes that catch my eye. I believe I am a work in progress and will spend the rest of my life learning and growing as a visual artist.
I hope you enjoy my paintings as much as I enjoyed collecting them.
