I was given my first camera by my grandmother "Orsie"; (her real name was Dolores) on my 13th birthday at my father's house inn Conroe, Texas. I have been making images for almost 30 years and really owe my love of photography to her. Even when I became a firefighter in Texas, my passion and love for photography continued to consume me.
I moved to Ottawa in 1996 and my creative focus has gravitated me more towards photographing "the parts of sum" in the form of what I call "details". Typically, my images involve inanimate subjects that are often overlooked as we rush through our busy lives. I am particularly fascinated by these objects created by human hands and often observe in wonder,how the forms of these objects are altered through human use and affected by the elements of nature.
