about

profile.jpg

I have been photographing for most of my adult life. Following my move to the New Hampshire seacoast and with the evolution of digital photography, my involvement with photographic art and with the artist community has grown significantly. I am currently President of the New Hampshire Society of Photographic Artists. I am also a juried member of the New Hampshire Art Association and was on its board. I am a contributing photographer to Portsmouth Magazine and The Sound Online, and have been published in magazines and newspapers.

My work is represented in the permanent collections of Optima Bank and Trust and the Exeter, NH Chamber of Commerce. My photographs were on display in Senator Jean Shaheen’s “Experience New Hampshire” exhibits in Washington, DC, as well as the Washington, DC and New Hampshire offices of U.S. Congresswoman Carol Shea-Porter. 

My artistic interests include landscapes, cityscapes, architecture and interiors of old, historic buildings. I also enjoy creating environmental portraits, capturing my subjects in a setting and pose which reflect their personality and lifestyle.

To give back to the community, I volunteer at local events such as TEDx Portsmouth and the New Hampshire Film Festival, and provide photographic services for a number of non-profits.

My series include portraits for small businesses, families and high school seniors. I offer photography tutoring for individuals, covering camera basics as well is digital post-processing. .

I have studied photography at the International Center for Photography and The New School, both in New York City, and the New Hampshire Institute of Art in Manchester, NH.
