PLEASE DO NOT USE MY PHOTOS AS STOCK OR DOWNLOAD WITHOUT MY PERMISSION. FEATURES ARE AN EXCEPTION AND MORE THAN WELCOME. THANKS FOR RESPECTING MY WORK.

I am a photography enthusiast,and a serial hobbyist. I hold a degree in Graphic Design.

I would like to say that I earn a steady income from doing what I love. Instead, I'm grateful that our savings allow me to practice and hone my "crafts". Like millions of others, I labor in the shadows of the few who achieve fame or even moderate financial success while doing what they love.

I've worked in the field of digital type technologies and also as a freelance graphic designer.
I am married with one son.

I've trained in traditional art forms as well as graphic design. I earned a BFA in Graphic Design from MassArt during the Stone Age (1984), when everything had to be done by hand. Rocks were my paper and tools. :-) Well, I'm exaggerating a little. Computer graphic programs proved to be very limited back in the dinosaur age. We used early color apple computers to edit very low resolution digital portraits (shot with a very rough approximation of a web cam) in a computer course, which was more for novelty than for anything practical. My assignments for my design classes were done the old fashioned way--by hand on a large drawing table, aided by a xerox machine at the local "Copy Cop" and the occasional sheet of press-type if I could afford it and if it was allowed. Otherwise, type had to be rendered by hand, as well as whatever artwork or photography was needed in the magazine ads, brochures and whatever else was assigned--logos, layouts, corporate identity projects...




In addition to photography, I also write poetry and short prose. I have self-published in 4 anthologies with an international online group. Check out my poetry and more artwork at allpoetry.com/Freed_by_Mercy

Thanks for visiting!

I refuse to make pretty pictures of the fascist tactics of our leader.
Queen's "we will rock you " refrain inspires.
