In 1996 I taught my last photography class and began in earnest to explore the possibilities of
computer enhanced photographic images. Although I first began experimenting with computer
imagery in 1991, the equipment was incredibly slow and very expensive. Before purchasing
Photoshop 1 for the PC computer, I stumbled along with PhotoStyler by U-Lead - the leader in PC photo
imaging at the time. I remember well waiting all night for a single image to render!
Since that time I have been obsessed with the wonderful discoveries that have been opened to
me through the computer. It seems as though the possibilities are endless and limited only by my
imagination. What a fun trip it has been. And I feel I am just getting started.
Currently I am working on creating works which focus on reality while at the same time
incorporating very abstract qualities. I call these Experiments in the Fifth Dimension.
