About

Since a very young age I had an interest in photography, taking photographs with a Kodak Brownie found abandoned in a drawer in my parents home. As a teenager my passion for reading and the visual arts got me interested in the works of the French impressionist artists and I amassed quite a collection of prints from Van Gough, Monet, Manet and De Gas. I studied oil painting and later on enrolled in college with a major in architecture. Later I decided that the self-taught approach to photography was not really working for me, so I enrolled at San Antonio College in San Antonio, Texas, where I took every photography class that was offered. Following, I went on to East Texas where I was accepted to continue my studies. While still in school some of my works were published in textbooks and prints sold at local fine arts galleries.

Following my studies and extensive practical experience, I discovered Polaroid Image Transfers and Polaroid Emulsion Peel-off, my two passions; photography and impressionist art came together. I love the ethereal look of the transfers, they give a photograph a third dimension very hard to accomplish by photography alone.

Although well versed in computers and computer enhancement, I prefer to hand paint the transfers to give them that third dimension. I have greater control of the final print using oils, watercolors and pencils. My passion for photography continues, with a collection of slides exceeding 20,000 and growing.

As well as photography I have been hand and machine embroidering since my teens, making small and large hand embroidered items; some have been embellished with beads, and other items. Which lead my to jewelry making.

I do enjoy making things with my hands; this pastime really relaxes me especially after a hard day.
