About the Artist

A very special teacher gave me my first camera and the only directions were to “show me what you see”. I grew up in a very small town and I didn’t think there was much to see. With her encouragement I found out there was. The things I saw everyday the railroad tracks a falling down house the ordinary things but from a different prospective and in a different light. To take a photo of something you pass by everyday, a building, a fountain or bed of flowers and cause the viewer to stop and look again. That is what makes a great photo to me.
