am a self-taught photographer who began taking photographs in
the 1970s. I have been educated as a biologist and have worked
in the field of biology for more than 35 years. My work has taken
me from the shores of Lake Ontario to the coast of James Bay.
My background in biology has provided an opportunity to experience
and embrace the rich, natural diversity of Ontario, which has
been an inspiration in my photography.
My passion in photography is focussed on capturing the subtle
details of the world that surrounds me. Through my photographs
I hope to express a mood, convey a message and lead the viewer
to take a closer look at the world in which they live. This subtle
beauty is close to us all, if we just take the time to stop and
look at what surrounds us.
In 2012, the Art Gallery of Peterborough inaugurated a Triennial
Exhibition of local artists that involved a broad range of artistic
types and styles - three of my images were selected for that
