In addition to my “Orchid Portraits” collection, I have developed three other noteworthy collections: “Nature Coast,” black and white landscape photographs of the west coast of Florida north of Clearwater; “White Paper,” photographs of a single sheet of white bond paper; and “Glass Art,” close-up photographs focusing on the details in glass pieces so that the artistic individuality of the pieces is emphasized and the viewer can enjoy the color, shape and movement waiting to be revealed.
My photograph, “Golden Tang Orchid #1” earned the top prize “Award of Excellence” at the NJ Photography Forum’s juried photography show at the Watchung Arts Center in the fall of 2011 and I have had solo shows at the Frelinghuysen Arboretum in Morristown, NJ, the Madison Gallery at Morristown Memorial Hospital, the Patrons’ Gallery at the Mayo Theater in Morristown and The Cottage Gallery in Ridgewood, NJ in addition to participating in a number of juried shows and group shows by invitation.
I am a member of the NJ Photography Forum.I have taught orchid and flower photography workshops and have been a guest lecturer at photography courses. I also photograph classical music concerts and am available for exhibition inquiries, workshops or print purchases.
