The silent poetry of the land, sea and sky inspires me to capture it with my camera. While I have practiced photography for most of my adult life, only after retirement did I devote regular effort to its art and craft. After retiring as a middle school science teacher, a photographic journey through the American Southwest intensified my desire to experience and share Nature's beauty.
In teaching my students meteorology, astronomy and geology, I strove to awaken their appreciation for the beauty and wonder of the Earth. I also encouraged them to become curious and sensitive human beings.
Because I am so moved by the power and of the natural world, my highest aspiration is to evoke that spiritual connection for the viewer. Achieving that is not always possible, of course, but the creative journey urges me onward.
My work has been exhibited in the Washington, DC area.
