I am a photographic artist and educator. I specialize in environmental portraits of children, families and high school seniors; and have worked as a professional portrait photographer for over 20 years. From 2007-2019 I was an adjunct professor of photography for the Art Institute of Pittsburgh’s Online Division. This fall 2019, I will begin a new exciting adventure as the K-12 art teacher for Hillsdale Academy in Hillsdale, MI.
My personal projects explore topics such as mark making, collecting and historic media arts processes.
The Retro Media Project is a workshop series I am developing primarily for youth that focuses on media literacy education and visual storytelling using handmade and vintage media art technologies. To learn more go to http://retromediaproject.com/.
The Analogue Dragon is my mobile media art studio that specializes in the use of historic and handmade processes. Products and services include salted paper and cyanotype printing, street portraits with vintage cameras and letterpress printmaking. Look for the Analogue Dragon at the Hillsdale County Farmers’ Market on sunny Saturdays from 8-12 May through September 2018.
