While I fell in love with the wonders of photography in high school in the 1960's, it wasn't until my college days that I began studying art and began making images in a serious and intentional way. I can credit my many teachers - Melanie Walker above all, for helping me to not only open my eyes, but to appreciate the visual connections and relationships that can bring real meaning into image making.
