Your Bio

My body of work can be described as a process of discovery. It offers an infinite variety of visual perceptions and interpretations. Through reconstruction and abstraction of a photograph, the observer is asked to undertake an adventure of discovery and challenged to explore shapes, colors, movement and form in a photograph. I am now beginning to enter a journey of adventure and discovery into simply digital art which continues my style in exploring shapes, colors, movement and form.

Recognition of my work has come from many group and solo exhibitions. Among them is a recent solo exhibition at the Bergamot Station Arts Center, Santa Monica, California hosted by Gallery ArtLA and two awards of merit from an affiliate of the national organization, Professional Photographers of America. I have been featured in magazines that include Around Your Own Home, Las Vegas, NV and was just recently chosen to appear on the inside front cover of the national online and print magazine, Art & Beyond.

My awards include:

Honorable mentions from Art Addiction, Medial Museum, London, England

Juried into Florence Biennale, Florence Italy, 2009

STELLAR Awards for WOMAN and GARDEN FLOWERS, Digital Arts California, 3013

Juried into winning on-line exhibition, Celebrate the Healing Power of Art, Manhattan Arts International, 2012

Work included in Best of Photography category, Manhattan Arts International, 2007
