Artist's Statement
  My artwork is influenced by Miksang, a form of contemplative photography which seeks to clearly see and to appreciate the vividness of the visual world. Images in this exhibit depict everyday objects viewed from a unique perspective, with an emphasis on bright colors and subtle shifts of light. All are actual photographs and are not digitally generated. To enhance luminescence, each photo is infused into metal and mounted on an aluminum shadowbox frame.

I would like to think that my artwork represents the efforts of all those who discover artistic expression later in life and who continue, as older adults, to learn, to create and to flourish. I am a member of the Madison Art Guild, Wisconsin Visual Artists and the Wisconsin Regional Artists Association. I have exhibited my work in several Wisconsin venues including the Overture Center, UW Memorial Union Gallery, Pyle Center and Art Fair on the Square.

I have taken many non credit classes through Continuing Studies. I have also been a previous participant in the CS Art Gallery. View my photographs at My email contact is
