Artist's Statement

I worked for many years as a gardener in both formal public spaces and private settings and this close interaction with nature has informed my art work, most recently with cyanotypes. My current work is inspired by the ephemeral in nature and relationships, the disrupted, overgrown landscape and flowers. I work intuitively on my cyanotypes with images I have photographed. The resulting luminous image almost always reveals something new about the subject and leads me forward. Due to the unpredictable nature of the process, each print has its own outcome. This uncertainty is a welcome part of the work. Each is one of a kind, made by hand in my studio, on a variety of light sensitized fine art papers. Recent exhibitions include: April/May 2022 8th International Juried Exhibition, Rhode Island Center for Photographic Arts and October 2021 the 22nd Annual Frances N. Roddy Exhibition at the Concord Art Center where my piece received a prize awarded from juror Sam Adams. Represented by Abigail Ogilvy Gallery, Boston.
