I started photographing when I was 14, taking slides with an early Pentax 35mm. I took a photography class at 16 and began using a 4×5 view camera with my own darkroom. In 2002 digital emerged which envigorated my passion in the visual arts. In the last 5-6 years I’ve started documenting and developing a visual framework to cultivate “seeing” that can be shared with others on their path of becoming visual artists.

    Such beautiful colors there!! It is unusual for the two articles to be together but must have some significance!

  • Thanks Icesrun! The colors there where delicious. Can’t comment on the meaning as I don’t really know.
