I'm a legally blind photographer, finger painter, and freelance writer based in Ky., and invite you to browse my online portfolio for your editorial needs, commercial needs, a gift for someone else, or a piece for your own personal art collection.

If you're interested in purchasing an image, be it photo or finger painting, you may do it here via DeviantArt, or e-mail me directly to purchase the original file/painting.

Some of my paintings, photos, and writing has been published in literary journals, art magazines, and consumer publications such as Art Times Journal, Disney's Family Fun Magazine, Chicken Soup for the Soul, American Profile, AllRecipes, LivFun Magazine, The Cortland Review, Special Living Magazine, TruEntertainment Magazine, TheNewerYork, Bricolage Magazine, Spirituality & Health Magazine, RevolutionArt, Smokelong Quarterly, Skipping Stones, Black Bottom Review, Whitefish Review, and many more.

Being a legally blind, professional finger painter, writer, digital artist, and photographer has its challenges, but I find ways to adapt.

Art that has been published before can be found in my "Art Previously Published" folder in my gallery here.

Thanks for your time.

A cousin and I went back to the childhood homes where we grew up. Everything was still there, just changed in some ways, older and wiser. The same creek, houses, barns, fields, hollow. We were overcome by the memories, but it was a good experience, got a lot of good pictures of those places we called home.

I'm finding that some people like a few effects in their photos, so I'm trying it out, and it's easy with just a few clicks.

Some of my favorite subjects to photograph are the outdoors, ordinary objects, children, families, and pets.

Since I'm visually impaired, I can't see well enough to tweak, manipulate, or enhance my photos, I shoot natural. The only effects I add would be to invert the image for effect, make it black and white, or crop it.

Point and shoot cameras are perfect for a visually impaired photographer like myself. The camera does the seeing, not me.
