Appreciation of photography as an art form began during theen age. It was film era when creating and developing images took time and those who were paitient enough rewarded with a phograph which could also be a work of ART. Ansel Adams was my go to and inspiration source. Later on I started teaching and inspiring others - Teaching teachers in my own high school was trilling and intimidating... Now- a- days, by using large and medium format film and digital cameras I create my fine art photographs presented on canvas, metal and glass finishes. Most of the art works are limited editions and can be purchased from my gallery and other galleries and art festivals framed or unframed.
The ever lasting experince of creating an art piece on film and print on paper has been deepening my love of photography exponantionally. This process of creation has replaced my painting skills profoundly. Through this I compose my compositions vastly using my camera as a brush and the light as my paint. Long ago, I built my own black & white darkroom which became my holley shrine for the endless nights and days spent flourishing and molding this new dimension in my life. I searched, found and captured beauty everywhere. World of artistic impressions were flown out of my little darkroom as if the ebtire universe opened to be explored and expressed on photographic medium.
In United States, my first exposure to the art world was show casing a few of my pieces at the Museum of Modern Art in central California. Eversince, I have had several other exposures including an exhibition at the University of San Diego loft right after Ansel Adams exhibition.
My Limited Editions have been purchased and collected thoughout the world and institutions like Bank of America .
Presently I have my art works desplayed in my own gallery in Old Town San Diego, California Participations in art festivals have earned me first place and second place in Indian Wells Art Festivals, 2018, 2019.
