Thank you for visiting my website. I trust you will enjoy the pictures that are posted. Please leave a message, I would love to know what photos you like and also what you didn't like. Art is about the story and the process. There is a story behind my art that I would enjoy sharing with you. When I pick up my camera, I am first looking for beauty whether it is a large landscape or a small piece of decayed wood. Secondly, I am trying to find the emotion of the day and time. Thirdly, I want people to be able to connect to the artist in me. And last, I want people to learn from my experience and I want to learn from what they have experienced.
It is hard to get the full impact (experience) from a website. Some of my work can be viewed, experienced and purchased at O’Onda Gallery & Gifts, 534 East Main Street, Richmond Indiana. Also, If you are interested in purchasing some pieces I can meet with you—view the area where you would like to place a piece and make recommendations on color, size and framing—there are so many possibilities that we can explore. Please email ([email protected]) to schedule a time to meet. I will be uploading pictures as they happen, so check back often. The art of taking pictures is an exciting journey.
My goal is to find beauty in the world around us and share that in my photographs. This is a challenge, but the process is fun. Examples of my work can be found on the walls of the Richmond Square Shopping Center on Richmond, Indiana’s east side. My pictures have been on display and won awards at the Richmond Columbian Properties, Photography Competition And Exhibit (Richmond, IN), at the Preble County Fine Arts Center (Eaton, Ohio); at the Arts Depot (Union City, IN), at Minnetrista Arts Place (Muncie, Indiana), at the Richmond Art Museum, at the Whitewater Valley Annual Art Competition held at Indiana University East (Richmond, IN) and at the Healing Art show at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford, Ohio.
In 2012, I was honored to have my first one-woman show at The Barry MacDowell Gallery, Reid Hospital and Health Care Services, Richmond, IN. The show received rave reviews from hospital staff and visitors.
I am so pleased when people enjoy my pictures. Pablo Picasso once said, "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." That’s how I feel when I pick up my camera—clean and free and that’s what I would like for people to feel when they see my pictures.
Please email if you are interested in meeting or want to know more about my work.
