Moving to the the Endless Mountains some 8 years ago changed everything about my life, except for the fact that art is my passion. The rural landscape, as well as portraits ot the people and animals that inhabit the rustic region of Northeastern Pennsylvania are portrayed through the faces and the places of the mountains, fields and meadows. From the dirty and calloused hands of the farmer to the ravages and rebirth of the land through the seasons, each image is a suspended representation of what remains of Rural America. You will also find many images of the local musicians of Northeast Pennsylvania that bring the local venues to life with their heartfelt music. It has been an honor and a privilege to photograph these lovely souls in the moment of the creation of music. A recent relocation to Scranton, Pa. has brought me closer to the art scene and I look forward to documenting life in the 'Electric City'. It's been said that NEPA is alive with art and music, and there is 'so much talent in this valley'. I could not agree more! Thank you for stopping by and I hope you find something that touches your heart and soul as it has touched mine.
