I was raised in a family of artists in central Florida. I have worked in photography most of my life.After high school I took a art photography class at Loch Haven art center in Orlando. During this time I had the opportunity to take a seminar with Jerry Uelsmann who taught me a lot of dark room tricks and how he created different worlds. I was really impressed and went out and got two more enlargers for my dark room.
After that I took a seminar with Ansel Adams who taught us all how to “Paint with light.”
