• I use the camera to look beneath the surface, to penetrate into the feel of experience. I generally consider my work portraiture, sometimes with people but often with birds and plant life, and these days, even the trees that I love.

  • I work with digital and film photography, alternative photographic processes, printmaking and textiles. In addition to life-long art making, I have worked as a magazine editor, marketing director, writer and I have taught art to children.

  • I live on a mountaintop in Morrison, Colorado, where I maintain a studio and share my world with flocks of crows and magpies, the family dogs and cats, and the occasional bear.
