Having grown up in Stark County, Ohio, I have returned to my roots, after practicing clinical psychology in Cincinnati and northwest Missouri. My journey at midlife also included two years as a Benedictine monk at Conception Abbey, Missouri. These experiences inform how I conceive my work: “Inward Light Photography.” My artwork includes digital, framed imagery, photographically-illuminated objects, and unique, custom greeting cards and post cards. Many of my current images come from our northeast Ohio environment. I often search for pre-owned frames that I recycle, choosing frames that specifically enhance an image. This gives a special individuality to each framed work displayed.
In applying these images to candles and greeting cards, I wish to be accessible to those not seeking framed photographic art. I plan to combine my training in psychology with the aesthetics of art by consulting with those using an artistic perspective to help others.
