Thanks much for stopping by to check out my journey as a visual artist! If you take a look at my art portfolio, you’ll find an eclectic mix of visual art. I am best known for travel photography, but our world is a beautiful one if we take the time to look! This is the reason my art also includes imagery from dusty country landscapes, urban skylines, and some exotic destinations.
I have long heard that photographers and other visual artists are best served by specializing in a particular subject or niche. Although I’ve thought about that goal often, I’ve found my love of creating memorable pictures resists a narrow focus. Still I believe there is one common theme to be uncovered. I believe that common thread is found in my voice as a visual artist and in my love of creating beautiful images. And if you take a break for a few minutes to enjoy my work, I think that voice and style will be evident in each and every picture.
If you enjoy your taste of my art and photography, I hope that you’ll consider taking advantage of one of the several ways that you can follow my work, including on Facebook, Twitter, and subscribing to my newsletter via e-mail.

Do you ever have the best of intentions and find time slipping between your fingers? I know I do!

Which makes the superstitious pessimist in me cringe a bit! Anyway, I usually post something about this on various social media but it’s normally … Continue reading
A few months ago, I posted about Charlotte Moore’s Deep South Dead, which used my eBook cover design. I’m happy to report that Ms. Moore felt that first design was successful enough to warrant using my services a second time. And yes, the second eBook in her Hunter Jones series of mystery books is now available! As happy as I am to share that story, I am also writing this to share some other news. … Continue reading
I was very excited recently to discover that the folks behind Fine Art America are expanding their product range. And first out of the gate is the addition of phone cases!

It’s no secret I’ve been looking at mirrorless cameras for awhile now. When I wrote a post about my current camera gear two years ago, I was already suggesting people who were looking at their first camera take a look at the Micro Four Thirds format. Even though I’ve yet to spring to action, the interest has not abated. I’m not one to rush to action on new camera gear. In fact, in over a … Continue reading
