I came to photography late, after years invested in writing. I fell in love with the process the moment the image rose up in the developer. Standing in the darkroom, I felt I’d finally discovered that elusive “flow.”
I’m intrigued by the distinct way that a photo can capture both light and memory in the same instant. My work focuses primarily on our inter-relationship with the natural world. I’ve recently begun experimenting with both encaustic and cold wax to discover how each might enhance the power of a photograph.
I’ve studied in a wide variety of places: the Art Institute of Chicago, the Evanston Art Center, the LaGrange Art League and Wright Community College. I also hold a masters degree in journalism.
