Growing up on a Wisconsin dairy farm next to a rocky stream and surrounded by woods, I developed an early appreciation of the natural beauty around me. My interest in photography started in college after adopting my family's 1940's era AGFA rangefinder that my father purchased in post WWII Germany. I have upgraded my equipment through the years and currently shoot with a Nikon D300 DSLR.

Since 1984, I have lived in the Quad Cities area... Davenport, Iowa and have participated in regional exhibitions and fine art fairs for over a decade. Images are now in many personal and corporate collections. Donations of art work are frequently made to several organizations for use in fund raising auctions.

Images are available as photocards, matted, loose prints, downloads, or framed. I do all of my own matting & framing using quality, acid-free, archival materials. Please contact me with any questions.
