AA Sonoma County native, I have been expressing myself through the medium of photography for over thirty years.  At the age of twenty three the first time I saw an image from a 35mm camera I was hooked.  I got my first camera as soon as I could save enough money.  I loved how there was no end to what you could learn and most important how I could express the artist inside.  Coming from film into the digital age so much has changed. One of the wonderful things is now with Photoshop and other digital tools, I have the ability to take what was real and transform it into a work of art or how I prefer to describe it  “A Work Of Mark”. With my all my images  I try to work from the heart capturing what I’m feeling at that precise moment with my camera.  Then utilizing a number of techniques, I push past the original photo to create something special that gives a more “Painterly” impression. My hope is to share with you a part of what I see as beautiful and in that vision... our hearts understand.
