For more than three decades I have been engaged in a practice as a fine art photographer. This practice has been both interrupted and informed by my formal studies (M.Ed. in Adult Education, B.Ed. – Visual Arts Specialist; BFA in Fine Arts). My practice and the creative processes I utilize to create my photographic and photo - based images has also become inextricably linked with my work, as an educator and community arts facilitator.
Workshops and Activities 
There are two photography workshops that I can offer, PHOTOGRAPHY AS DRAWING and ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY . Through the PHOTOGRAPHY AS DRAWING workshop students will examine and explore the formal and aesthetic relationships between photography and other mediums such as drawing, painting, sculpture and print making. Students will learn how to create photo – based artworks, and how to use the camera as a drawing tool. Students in the ABSTRACT PHOTOGRAPHY workshop will examine and explore the formal elements that can be used in the creation of abstract photographs such as line, tone, textures, colours or using macro, wide angle or telephoto lenses to create an image that is non – representational.
