I am an American Artist living on the American Southwest desert.

 

I hold three degrees in the philosophy of fine art painting/drawing, sculpture/fine art classical printmaking and fine art photography/printmaking. I attended the School of Visual Arts, Cooper Union both in New York City and Pratt Institute in the Borough of Brooklyn. I was mentored in sculpture and printmaking by sculptress Louise Bourgheois, painting and drawing by Pop Artist Marjorie Strider and in photography by Todd Watts. Due to my darkroom skill and printing skills, I was chosen by Mr. Watts to assist him and others with printing the early scientific works by Master photographer Berenice Abbott. I have been an intern for curator Jackie Kennedy Onassis at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC. I have an Associates Degree in Business Administration. I own a small photography studio and fine art custom Archival print business named "Voodoo Ink" since 1996.

 

My work shows a developed, mature artist; with traditional imagery and techniques using film and the digital medium. My work has been exhibited in the Leo Castelli Gallery, NYC and has been featured at galleries and museums in New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, Florida and Arizona. My photography has appeared in numerous merit based publications, is included in the US governments National Parks Historical Archives, The Library of Congress, the National Center of Atmospheric Research Cloud Atlas, Arizona State Library Archives, to promote Arizona Highways Magazines 2020 and 2021 Annual Photography contest. I was awarded Honorable Mentions and published in Arizona Highways Magazine in 2020 and 2021. I volunteer my documentary services for local environmental advocacy groups and Native American Culture in Pima County, AZ. I am the Founder and Administrator for the merit worthy and award winning "National Geographic "Your Shot" Alumni"© group on Flickr. Besides my own fine art photography, I am also a master Archival print-maker for talented fine art photographers and art collectors.
