Biography

“Is there anything worse than being blind? Yes, a man with sight and no vision.”
...Helen Keller
We see with our eyes…but art is from the heart. My images will transport you to another place ... in your mind.
Artists create dreams, for when we are awake.

As an optometrist of many years, I interpret the effect of light and images on a person's eyes......much as a photographer interprets light to create an image.

My work you will see is varied...from small details and patterns in nature to broad landscapes around the world. I trust there is something here for everyone.

You may like a large fine art image to sit and contemplate on....or a series of small dramatic images to decorate a space. The choice is yours.

I trust you will enjoy my work and call again as images are always being added to.
