They say everyone has a happy place, and mine just so happens to be in the water – and maybe even more so, under it!

I’ve long had a passion for capturing underwater life, and that recently expanded to human portraiture.

Collaborating with outstanding Tampa makeup artist Stephanie Paul, we embarked on a project to create Zombie-like mermaids and mermen and see how they photographed underwater. “A Siren’s Peril,” shot with 10 willing and fantastic merfolk over the summer, is the result of that project. Each subject brought fabulous and unexpected emotion, underwater prowess, and artistry to their expressions and poses.

We hope you can come out for my very first art show as an underwater portrait photographer, sponsored by Philip Shenkman CPA, Haven and LKLD magazines, and Polk Arts & Cultural Alliance, at ART/ifact, 820 N. Massachusetts Ave., Downtown Lakeland. Hours are noon to 5 p.m. Monday to Saturday. Admission is free and open to the community.

Each guest who signs in when they visit the gallery will be entered into a daily drawing for a special photo shoot giveaway. All prints will be available for purchase as limited editions.

Thank you for supporting my work. This has been a wonderful journey!
