I am a self-taught photographer based in St. Petersburg (Tampa Bay), Florida. I am a St. Pete native.
I am currently focused on two bodies of work: waterscapes and a money themed pop art collection. I will continue my Macro Collection and Iconic Landscapes.
As the Earth orbits the sun – light and water power our planet. I am a Florida native surrounded by water. As lover of the planet I naturally moved into this body of work. This art has it’s challenges: working out in the elements with water (not a camera’s friend), wildlife, the orbit of the Earth around my light source – the sun, and weather. I capture the movement of light and water like a paintbrush to express the mood and feel of water. We can all enjoy the calming energy of nature indoors in our living and working spaces through my art.
Our lives revolve around money. What do base your daily decisions around? The concept of ‘money’. A piece of paper. A number in the cloud.
I am learning everyday about the history of ‘money’. Money has always fascinated me. I have been making money themed works since about 2014. Here we are in 2020 living with a pandemic. I became even more obsessed
