I am a predominantly self-taught mobile artist from Pennsylvania, USA. My work embodies a visual illustration of art created on mobile devices. My images have been exhibited in museums, art centers, and galleries on an international basis, including Paris, Rome, and Florence. I am represented by The App Whisperer Online Gallery

I administer Edit from the Soul and @ig_artistry, FB and Instagram groups which promote originality, creativity, and emotive art and curates for the New Era Museum. I have also served as a juror for galleried shows and local camera clubs. 

I can be found at and on Flickr and on Instagram as @before.1st.light, and @after.1st.illumination.

“I am part of an art movement, called mobile artistry, where visual art is created almost exclusively using mobile devices. I believe that quality mobile artistry starts with a good underlying photographic capture. That involves technique, composition, balance, light, and texture.. but I find the capture alone to only be the foundation for my creative process. It is in experimentation and post-processing that I channel my emotions and creativity. My iPad becomes my canvas and the photograph the initial layer of paint. In the work that follows, the paint remains wet and the exposure unset until I hit the image’s sweet spot.”
