Born in East St Louis, Illinois
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 Nikon D7200)
We are soon to move to the Wellington area of 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.
