My interest in photography dates back to the mid-1950's when my father brought home one of the first Polaroid Land cameras. I was laid up with the whooping cough and he thought the camera would cheer me up. Well, as much as it might hurt to admit it, Dad was right. I still have that camera, and, to make a long story short, I've been making photographs ever since.

It is, however, only in the past ten years that I've sought out opportunities to exhibit my work, including showings at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Sales and Rental Gallery, the Magidson Gallery in New York City, the Washington County Arts Council Gallery in Hagerstown, MD, and the Print Center in Philadelphia.
If you're in the Philadelphia area, you can see my work in the collections of the Woodmere Art Museum, the Philip and Muriel Berman Museum at Ursinus College, and at Rosemont College. Other collectors include the State Museum of Pennsylvania in Harrisburg, the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax, and the Harry Ransom Center at the University of Texas in Austin. Also, my photographs have been published in "Camera Arts" magazine, "The Calumet Newsletter for Photographic Artists," and the "Antietam Review."
My photographs have been accepted into juried exhibits at the Berman Museum, Woodmere Art Museum, the University of Delaware, the Chatauqua Art Association in New York State, Villanova University, the Art Association of Harrisburg, and the Center for the Arts in Southern New Jersey, to name a few. And, my "Chappy Cabanas and Edgartown Light" photograph was on loan to the American Embassy in Kuwait, as part of the U.S. Department of State's Art in Embassies program.
Much of my work focuses on the landscape of Pennsylvania's Lancaster County. Also, recently, I've returned to the studio -- the result is a series I call White Flowers. To my delight, this work has evolved into a newfound outlet for my emotions and creativity.
