Since the closing of the Arts At Canal Place Co-Op Gallery, my art can be seen at Rocky Gap Lodge, Western Maryland Health System hospital, and Little Red's Curio Shop on the corner of Center and Valley Streets in Cumberland, MD.

My work has been juried into a number of shows in Western Maryland and won First Place in Special Effects in the Allegany Arts Council Photography Show in 2009 and Best in Show during the Allegany Arts Council Photography Show in 2010. My photos have been published in several issues of the Allegany Magazine, Maryland Life and the Town Planner Calendars.

I am a native of Cumberland, Maryland. My interest in photography became serious with my first digital camera. Since I already found the artistic side of a computer, the possibilities were now endless for me to manipulate and enhance my photos to make them as interesting as possible. I use a variety of photography programs and filters. I have a certain outlook on life, wherein I despise the mundane. I manipulate photos so that they will not only come alive but also have a unique life of their own.


My main addiction is photographing "quiet worlds" such as cemeteries, and neglected/abandoned buildings, as all is at peace there. I also love flowers of any type. I rarely take photos of people. I also like anything unusual, un-worldly or psychedelic. I'm a child of the 60's and still have one foot there. I really enjoy the world of macro photography, and am attempting to perfect this. There is an entire other world to anything, if you look closer.

I always enjoy looking at another person's photography, and how they perceive a subject or scene, and then how the artist finally presents it. I've seen some of your work through your FB connection with Abbott and Vaughn. We were in the Media Tech program together at ACC. (I think I remember you at ACC, but not in our program - and I'm not at all too sure.)

After rejuvinating old friendships, and seeing what others are creating, I'm finally starting to play around with digital photography. I'm loving the freedom.

Thank you for the passive encouragement, from sharing your collections. I like your slant on things.
