I am blessed to live in the South Carolina Low Country where the abundance of nature, landscapes, seascapes, architecture and historic sites produce a never ending supply of subjects and inspiration. I have a special passion for photographing the vanishing culture of the area such as tobacco barns, old houses and examples of by gone days. For centuries this was agricultural, first with indigo, then rice and finally tobacco. Now with the growing population, much of the past is disappearing under strip malls, housing developments or just falling down, so the need to preserve these treasures in photographs is great. I also enjoy nature, landscape, architectural and travel photography.
I am an award winning self taught photographer and shoot digital. With the Mentor Series out of New York City, I have participated in workshops in Glacier National Park, Montana; in Arches and Canyon Lands National Parks in Utah; Savannah, Georgia and in Provence France and have attended local workshops and training programs. Today's photography is an ongoing educational experience.
My work is on display and for sale at The Georgetown Art Gallery, 705 Front Street, Georgetown, ; Art and Frame Galleries in Myrtle Beach and Murrells Inlet, SC: Seacoast Artists Gallery, Nevers Street, Market Common, Myrtle Beach: and Low Country Gallery, Professional Drive, Pawleys Island, SC.

I was a selected artist in the Art Fields Festival in 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 and in Carolina's Got Art 2013. I am a member of the Carolinas' Nature Photography Association of Myrtle Beach, the Seacoast Artists Guild, the Waccamaw Arts and Crafts Guild, Myrtle Beach Camera Club, and the Photographic Society of America..
