PLEASE NOTE: THE "FINE ART AMERICA" LETTERING SEEN ON THE SCREEN EXISTS ONLY TO PREVENT ONLINE THEFT AND WILL NOT APPEAR ON THE FINAL PRINT.
My personal interest in the visual arts originated with my first forays creating black and white prints from film negatives in my high school photography class darkroom. I put photography on hold for a number of years during my science education in college and professional school. But as I emerged from my intensive professional training and discovered the new equipment and the digital darkroom, I re-visited my earlier passion. Similar to darkroom development in film photography, I adjust my 'digital negatives' to recreate what I felt and saw when the capture was made, and so as to make the images ready for printing. This has lead to exploration of other forms of digital art.
I am personally drawn to striking images with depth and textural qualities, and I attempt to bring these characteristics to my own work. Overall, I strive for the images that I create to be evocative, to elevate above the simply documentary, but also as to be representative of the time and place in which they were made. For someone to display one of my images their home or professional environment is a great compliment, and I am very appreciative.
I currently divide my time between Ithaca, NY (where my husband is an astrophysicist at Cornell University), and Davis, California (where I am on faculty at the University of California-Davis School of Veterinary Medicine), and so the bulk of my subjects are from these parts of the world.
