Ohio Fine Art Photographer Who Loves Chasing Sunsets over Awesome Places

I’m an Ohio fine art photographer producing vivid canvas wall art in Dayton, Ohio.  I capture Miami Valley sunsets, skylines, and parks under colorful skies.

As evidenced by my US National Park art prints, peaceful West Virginia waterfalls scenes, and colorful views of St Louis, my work isn't limited to Southwest Ohio.

Updates, News Releases, and the Rest of the Story
