As a school age child and teen, painting and drawing were always important to me. In high school I discovered photography. Pencils and brushes were put aside in favor of film, paper and chemicals. After high school I studied photography with Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind and Frederick Sommer at the Institute of Design. Five years later I moved into directing motion pictures. Later in life I became an art teacher and returned to making photographs.
I have experienced both the birth and death of loved ones, and have found the need to express the notion of mortality, impermanence, and limits as themes in my photographic work. Photography enables me to discover, reveal and create more than the eye readily discerns-what the heart and mind sometimes hides.
