After more than a quarter century of full-time painting, I became first a painter with a really good camera, and then began to occasionally refer to myself as a photographer before finally settling on "Image Collector". I still paint, but not nearly as much for the moment. As a photographer, I have traveled extensively collecting images and doing freelance work for McGraw-Hill Books. I am currently working on a project to document as many Tucson artists in their studios as I can over the next year. You can follow along here if you are on facebook.
