“ABSTRACTING IS A MEANDERING METAPHOR OF WHAT CAN BE.
IT LEADS WITH THE MIND IN TOW.
IT IS WIT ON A RAMPAGE.”
- Peter Stratton, 2018

When a boy, at our family’s summer camp, I used to walk the lakeshore looking for driftwood. Most were rather plain, but a few invited me to daydream in fascination as if traveling into, though and around something very special… You know, the kind of things we used to do before age and reality took their toll? I am most grateful some of that little boy is still within me. :-)

I was graduated from The Rhode Island School of Photography with both Comprehensive and Advanced degrees, (1979-1980), just as the industry was making the transition from film to digital imaging. Many a business closed. Long story short, I became a custom art framer until my retirement. Since then, with the advent of Photoshop, digital manipulation has become the avenue for my photo-graphic knowledge which has made for an easy transition into the world of abstract art.
