Welcome to my online Galleries.
I studied elementary art and sketching in early education and I've found photography to be an immediate extension of my love for art.
I'm a 2nd generation shutterbug with a varied interest .
I have been sharing my photography in galleries and online since 2005.
My camera equipment is simple,a Sony DSLR Alpha 330 with a 55mm and 300mm lens.
I enjoy using filters to bring a wonderful photo to another artistic level.
Some of my exciting and unexpected success include:
In 2007 I entered my first photo competition and won First Place in B/W portrait photo competition with 'PEEK A BOO' a child's portrait in sepia tone.
In 2009 I took Blue Ribbon and First Place in a Juried Art show at Univ. of Connecticut in the Digital photo catagory for 'BOATS REFLECTED'.
In 2007-2014 I have enjoyed being a photo contributor to our local newspaper, providing photos of human interest and news about town.
In 2011 I had my first gallery sale of a photographic work of art, 'The H.L. Walking Stick'.
Our Fairfield Magazine has published one of my summer photos, and purchased a Winter Mill photo for the Holiday Issue.
I appreciate the support and encouraging comments as well as my deep gratitude to my followers and of course, THANK YOU to the purchasers of my art that encourages me to keep on creating.
Thank You so much for visiting my galleries.ðŸŒ»
