My background is in photography, and I had the good fortune to study at the University of New Mexico in the early 1980s when it's photography program was nationally recognized. Since that time, digital cameras and editing software have changed the way we process images, but good composition and subject matter will never be replaced. A lot of my work begins with a photograph, and I will transform the image into something new and different. But sometimes, there is nothing like a good old black and white.
BIRDS AND ANIMALS
I have always been an animal lover. I guess because they have basic instincts, don't judge and, in the case of domestic animals, usually provide unconditional love. My favorite bird is a crane and I enjoy visiting the Bosque del Apache in the winter when the Sandhill Cranes visit by the tens of thousands each year.
