I began my career as a performance artist, studying at the Cleveland Playhouse and working as a professional dancer, including the June Taylor Dancers on the Jackie Gleason Television Show circa 1962-64, before evolving into my studies at Actor’s Studio in New York.

For the past two decades, I have exhibited in solo and group exhibits, and my work resides at the Samuel Dorsky Museum at SUNY/New Paltz, as well as in private and corporate collections. I continually experiment with various techniques in photography,

bringing a unique, painterly and interpretive style to my images. I use a hand-held camera and natural lighting with a variety of simple-to-complex subjects — all brought into my “dry darkroom” for final work and printing.

Because my passion lies in the merging of words and images, I continue to add these to my ongoing Photo-Journal Chronicles, while journeying through my beloved Hudson Valley Region of upstate New York … and beyond.
