I was born in central Pennsylvania, and spent much of my childhood painting, drawing and photographing the landscape around me. After high school, I moved to Baltimore to attend the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Since graduating from MICA with a BFA, I have exhibited my landscape photography regionally and nationally.
Since 2011, I’ve been using my iPhone exclusively to a express the landscape.
My landscape iPhoneography has been exhibited regionally and nationally, including Maryland Art Place, University of Maryland University College, Biggs Museum of American Art, MassoniArts, and Soho Photo Gallery. I was a recipient of a 2015 Individual Artist Award grant from the Maryland State Arts Council. In 2004, I was awarded an artist’s residency at the Platte Clove Nature Preserve in the Catskills, New York; and was an artist-in-residence at Acadia National Park, Maine in 2006. You can find my work in the collections of the National Park Service, and numerous private collections.
I teach iPhone Photography workshops at Chestertown RiverArts Gallery, Adkins Arboretum, St. Michael’s Art League, the Biggs Museum of American Art in Dover, and at my studio in Baltimore.

When I’m not photographing the landscape, I’m also a graphic designer. You can view my design portfolio at www.klinedinstdesign.com.
