The art show in Foster City went very well; I sold a lot of note cards (they seem to be very popular) and more than recouped the cost of the display.  I also had a visitor order a custom commission from me of this print Antique Coins by 10000Greetings  He initially wanted to purchase the one I had on display (which had a huge NFS tag on it), but I told him I was really attached to it, but would make him an almost identical one.

The San Mateo County Fair went pretty well.  I received two honorable mentions, one for Purification by 10000Greetings in the Still Life category and the other for Kwannon Statues by 10000Greetings in the Religious, Spiritual, Visionary category.  

So now, I am settling into Summer and getting my gallery organized.  I also have a lot of preparation to do before the school year starts in August, so I will be plenty busy.  Stay tuned to this gallery or my website for the latest updates and the newest photos.

I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, but have spent a lot of time in both Paris and Japan. I am an adjunct professor of French and Japanese, and so my work takes me to sites around the world for conferences, giving me plenty of opportunities to take photos in my spare time.

I have exhibited my work at both the San Mateo County Faire and the annual Foster City Art and Wine Festival and have won several awards for my still-life works. Some of my work is featured in the book Images of America: Foster City (Arcadia Publishing, 2005), to which I was also a contributing writer.…

When shooting travel photography, I try to capture the essence of the locale—the people, the colors, the food, the daily lifestyles, and, of course, the famous monuments. Of all the places I’ve visited, Paris remains my favorite to photograph." An upcoming series, entitled ‘Paris: Ville Touriste, Ville Insolite’ (Paris: Hidden Gems in a Tourist City) will showcase both the world famous and the hidden sides of the city.

Although I specialize in studio still lifes and travel photography, I try not to limit myself to any one style or genre, as you will see in my "Other Photos" section. I have photographed flowers, marine life, animals and modes of transportation, civil aircraft being my favorite.

All of the pieces shown here are available for purchase through DA or through me directly. Note me if you are interested in any of the pieces.
