Welcome to my blog index
Here you will find snippets from my most recent blog posts.

An Artisan’s Affair will be held at the Clarion Hotel in Shepherdstown on Sunday, June 1, 2014, in aid of Breast Cancer Awareness. Featuring guest speakers Tony and Jonna Mendez, real-life heroes portrayed in the movie Argo, and a silent auction of artworks (including my own), this promises to be a great afternoon.

For some time I have faced a dilemma in describing my art. It’s certainly not pure photography, but to describe it as digital art, whilst not incorrect, tends to make people believe that it is computer generated.
