I first encountered the magic of photography as an 8-year-old armed with a Kodak Brownie. Around the same time, I "studied" painting in children's classes at the Baltimore Museum of Art. Now as an older adult, I have returned to my early interest in creative photography--reinterpreting what I see, be it the unintended patterns of rust and paint that become landscapes or city skylines, or the intended, digital juxtaposition of multiple photos or photo and painting. My recent foray into acrylics and mixed media work is a logical extension of my photography. While I continue to seek out (or create) abstract images with my camera and through digital editing, I now focus more on the seemingly unlimited universe of color, composition and texture in acrylic mediums, collage, monoprinting, and varying combinations of all of the above. Inspired by the real and imagined layers of natural and urban subjects, I work in layers, using digital manipulations of photos, and on paper and canvas by stacking thick applications of paint, photos, papers, cardboard, and found materials, creating both depth of vision and depth of meaning. I have exhibited at the Minnetonka Center for Arts, Hopkins Center for Arts, Artistry (Bloomington), and Hallberg Center for the Arts (Wyoming MN) and work at my studio in Northeast Minneapolis.
