Lives & works in O fallon, Illinois


I've always been an artist and photographer.  (well, around age 4)

I've also always adored animals and spend as much time as I can in their company.

My photography started in 1978 when I purchased my first Nikon FE. I used it to take reference photos for my paintings and drawings. 

After years of art shows, expensive supples, booths and entry fees, I decided to just sit and spend time with the animals and my camera. (A new Sony A9ii)

We have moved to Lake Worth, Florida and I plan to be at the nature preserves in the area as much as possible. 

I hope you enjoy my work. If you find one you especially love, contact me and we can discuss a print just for you.
