Bio

I put my interest in creating art on the back burner for a couple of decades as I pursued my more analytical side and interest in science. I went on from there to pursue yet another interest, education. I have a doctorate in Educational Psychology from Purdue University. I then went on to work in the field of Science Education for many years with a passion for educational reform influenced by some lofty philosophical ideas about curriculum, contextual thinking, and students active in designing their own learning experiences.

My current prints are photography based digital art. The process of creating my digital artwork is iterative. I do not preplan a piece from beginning to end. I let the work emerge as an interaction of the image or images and with the feeling or concept I get from them. Sometimes the concept changes because the image speaks differently. At other times, the image changes to better portray a concept or feeling. I do not follow a certain technique or philosophy although I am enamored with many like 'magical realism' and how that connects to my philosophical leanings. 
Working in a digital medium allows me to be spontaneous. I make hundreds of decisions when creating a piece, with each decision being either discarded or saved. Many times, I have different versions of the piece I am working on. Some pieces have a large number of layers involved, I can simply click on a layer and make it invisible, bringing it back later if desired.
