Born cross-eyed, corrective surgery left me with no depth perception. Being stereo-blind and lacking stereopsis (the ability to see in 3D), I developed a different way of seeing things, and measuring spaces, layers and distances that I use in my photography. I’ve taken my handicap and turned it into an advantage.
I studied photography and received a BFA from San Francisco Art Institute and MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. After getting my BFA, I started exhibiting and selling my work. I landed three galleries representing my work. As a result my work is in the collections of the Dallas Museum of Art, Seattle Art Museum, Museo Nacional de Antropologia- Mexico, Amon Carter Museum of American Art, The Art Institute of Chicago, and numerous private collections. The Amon Carter Museum of American Art included me in the exhibition Exploring Sight: Young Photographers in the 1970s. I was also included in the Macmillan Biographical Encyclopedia of Photographic Artists & Innovators.
I took an extended leave of absence from exhibiting but not photographing. Now I’m bringing the years of images and recent work back into the fine art photography world.
