A child of the 50’s, a survivor of the 60’s, my main artistic outlets are stained glass and photography. I have operated my glass studio since 1976 and have works all over the U.S. I originally entered university to study photographic journalism, but as John Lennon wrote, “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.” I do not use PS or other manipulations in my photographs, just adjusted settings on the camera.

    I can hear it roar. Just brought a few in, & they’re opening up. Great shot!

  • Thank you. The many varieties is almost as intoxicating as their fragrance. Peace
