About Me

I began my art career doing drawings and sculpture; which eventually evolved into using the camera as a sculptural tool. Photographs were published as note cards, calendars and then a collection of my images in the book ShadowLight (1994). My models are ordinary people I have discovered in the Twin Cities; strangers I, figuratively speaking, tap on the shoulder and ask if they would like to be 'immoratalized'. This practice was the heart of my teleplay 'When The Blue Bird SIngs' for the CBS television series Beauty and the Beast that aired in 1989. Google it, it's fun.

I prefer the heroic figure, pushing models to athletic limits and discovering marvelous shapes; hills and valleys of anatomy defined by the chiaroscuro.

There will be a quiz.
