About the Work
I am a photographer and papermaker. I have been immersed in the complexities of handmade paper for many years, exploring the unique structural and textural qualities of the material. This piece is an example of my work photographic work, printing directly onto my handmade paper using an applied silver emulsion. Although this image is part of a small edition every step in the process yields opportunities for variations resulting in a unique print that embodies my artistic intention as well as the unexpected.

Both my mixed media and photographic my work focus on natural patterns and textures. I am looking for an essence not easily defined. "Pretty" is not it, although the work is often elegant. I am interested in the natural cycles that are part of life, capturing the universal forces of generation, growth and decay.
