I first picked up a camera about eight years ago because I was looking for a creative outlet. My photography has become so much more. It brings me joy and I always have my camera within reach. "Found Art" is my favorite subject matter and there seems to be plenty of that in central Indiana. I am drawn to the rustic everyday items most people don't notice. Lines, colors, textures and shadows catch my eye. I have no professional training in photography, but I have always considered myself a creative person. I did study fine art during my high school years. Printing my work on aluminum gives my images a modern presentation.
