While I have been known primarily as a “people photographer, ” my vision is continually expanding to include more of the world around me. When I pick up a camera, ordinary objects become extraordinary. Nothing escapes my lens, whether it’s a fur seal in New Zealand, a blooming amaryllis, or a shower curtain at my daughter’s home. In my recent personal work, I seek to document my surroundings in new and surprising ways. These are the images I am sharing at the Dedham Square Artists Guild.

As a portrait artist, I have a passion for the human condition. My photos of cancer survivors now hang on the Massachusetts General Hospital Wall of Hope, and at the Gordon Cancer Center at Lahey Clinic. My personal project, Gay Dads and their Kids (1999), hung in multiple venues, and was published in Savoir Flair magazine. I have photographed hundreds of Canadian and U.S. artists and business executives. My work has been published in more than 50 international magazines, and has been shown in one-woman exhibitions across Canada and the Eastern United States. I operate a portrait studio out of my home in Dedham.
