About The Artist
Artist Statement A selection of images that have the carnival like feeling of large crowds with colorful attire.
Bio I am descendent from Underground Railroad Conductor Frank Wanza and fine art artist and musicians.I grew up in the San Francisco bay area during the 1970’s and was exposed to a lot of artistic influences during that time of major self-exploring and creative self-expression. Back then sketching was my primary passion in art classes, but I also took lots of science classes Upon leaving California I moved to Washington DC in the 80’s where I majored in Computer Science, find a lot of room for creativity in the expression of computer software algorithms. I graduated from UDC , became a software developerand took up photography as a hobby after letting my drawing and musical skills atrophy.After 12 years of just shooting for the joy of composition, I was encouraged by Michael Platt to start exhibiting my work. In 2007, I took the plunge by exhibiting at the DC Artomatic, which was held in Crystal City that year. Although I had previously sold some pictures over the internet and moonlighted as a trip photographer in the past, 2007 was the first time I sold art from a gallery space.
