Though I had teenage interest in the artistic use of photography, I didn’t begin my photographic arts career in earnest until the fall of 2000. Inspired by Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist’s Way, and with encouragement from my wife, Susan Garsoe, and friend, Bruce Hamilton, I brought some pictures into public view. With further support from my photography group, The Circle of Confusion, and artist Rodney Wood, then director of the Business of Art Center, I applied for and received my first solo show.
I have shown my work in galleries in Seattle, New York City, Los Angeles, Santa Fe, Cape Cod, and Mammoth Lakes, CA as well as in Denver, Boulder, Durango, and my hometown, Colorado Springs. My pictures have been purchased for public buildings and private collections and recently one was chosen to be in the permanent collection of the Dow Museum of Science and Art in Michigan. They have been featured in magazines and appeared on book covers. I also publish an annual poster calendar featuring my images. Most recently I have designed a set of cards using 14 of my images.
