Work Experience - Fine Art

         My exhibition and gallery experience includes promoting and exhibiting my own artwork, establishing and managing three art galleries, founding a successful 501(c)4 non-profit art organization, and curating a large number of art exhibits for my own galleries and for other organizations.  


I have broad experience as a working artist, supporting myself through sales of my work. My current artwork is focused on computer manipulated digital photography.  My experience as an artist includes drawing, printmaking, painting, photography, ceramics, video production, computer art, 3D animation, mixed media, and interactive media. Exploring new technologies and techniques is always exciting for me!

My photographic experience includes black & white, color, and digital photography, as well as photo printmaking techniques. I began darkroom printing in the early 1960s.  I joined the digital revolution earlier than most, and have a strong understanding of the history and evolution of photography.
