I usually don't shoot landscapes or nature scenes. More often, my pictures spring from my imagination. I like themes that reflect on simpler times of the past. I'm nostalgic about the family farms, and the thriving down towns of the villages and cities of the 1950's. As I travel, I am always on the lookout for abandoned farm houses and our state's fine old barns. I watch for lilacs blooming in the country in the spring. Sometimes they stand alone, the last marker of a family farm. As Wisconsin writer Jerry Apps has said, "More likely than not, when you see these lonely lilacs you have located the site of an old farmhouse, now long gone." In the country villages, I always watch for that old general store, hoping to find one that hasn't been reluctantly forced into becoming an apartment or worse.
I do a wide range of conceptual, fine art, and vintage glamour photography. The conceptual subjects range from the pastoral, to "worm in the rose" surprises and - occasionally troublesome anti-war and political messages. I am also fond of re-creating iconic paintings and photos, rearranging the characters and faces.
I am a member of the Fox Valley Camera Club, Seeking Focus Photography Association, and past president of the Oshkosh Area Photography Group. I have photos on display at Star Gallery (Oshkosh) and First Congregational Church (Oshkosh.)
