Sometimes, mental illness produces amazing results. Having struggled with Bi-Polar disorder (formerly referred to as manic depression) most of my life, I’ve finally discovered a productive outlet for this intense energy – photography. Routinely I cycle thru long periods of great depression followed by (and often simultaneous) events of mania. Whatever mood(s) I am dealing with, I shoot, and I shoot and I shoot more images to ex-press my emotions. This is why you may notice in my work soft, gentle images, followed immediately with bold, bright powerful abstracts. Welcome to my world. My work is honest – what you see is what I feel. In essence, anyone experiencing my work, experiences me.
I Need to create to Live! Creativity is passion. Passion is life. Without passion, I’m in serious trouble. So you see, photography quite literally keeps me alive.
For a really scary (but true) BIO, here is my story - a painfully honest account of my first 59 years. I’m hoping the next 59 will be more of a downhill slide and if not, stay tuned as it will appear in my photographs and blog posts.
