June 2017 Artist of the Month
Photography has been my passion for the last 20 years. To further enhance my skills I took an online course with New York Institute of Photography and continued toward advanced courses. This led me to becoming the President of the local photo club.
I am a volunteer at the Peace River Wildlife Center at Ponce de Leon Park in Punta Gorda, which includes being a tour guide and hospital assistant. I am also one of the Center’s photographers. My photo art of these animals is put on various items to be sold in the Gift Store. This generates revenue for the Peace River Wildlife Center care and rehabilitation process.
I have been honored to win several photo contests during my career. My photos are also displayed in advertisements, published in books, PowerPoint presentations, and accompany newspaper articles.
