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 enjoying photography since 2005, begining with a Sony point and shoot, which I still love.
My camera equipment is simple,a Panasonic Lumix point and shoot with a Leica lense and a new Sony DSLR Alpha 330 in 2010.
I love using filters to bring a wonderful photo to another artistic level.
Some of my sucesses include:
In 2007 I entered my first photo competition and won First Place in B/W portrait photo competition with "PEEK A BOO" a 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 2011 I had my first gallery sale of a photographic work of art, "The H.L. Walking Stick".
I continue to experiment and hope to grow into my own style of photographic art.
Thank You so much for visiting my galleries.
