About

art for the insatiably curious

Each photo in the Beachcombing series documents the things I found beautiful or intriguing on a particular beach on a particular day, forming a set of stylized beach portraits.

Beachcombing is fundamentally a treasure hunt, an emotional and old-fashioned form of exploration that depends on serendipity, suspense, and glee. Identifying my finds can require research in marine biology, glass-making history, geology, chemistry and other disciplines. The resulting photos look vaguely scientific, with echos of pressed botany specimens and Linnean classification diagrams. In a way they are. But where most scientific illustrations present answers, these photos are a way of articulating my questions.

Bio:
I received my B.A. in Art History and Asian Studies at Vassar College in 1989. As part of the degree requirements, I studied Japanese language and woodblock printing at Nanzan University in Nagoya, Japan. After a brief period at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, I worked as an antiquarian book dealer in San Francisco, and then earned a Masters in Landscape Architecture and Historic Preservation at the University of Virginia in 1997. I have practiced landscape architecture on Mount Desert Island since 1998.

I am particularly interested in the intersection of science and art, whether at the scale of an engineered landscape or at that of a carefully composed still life photograph.

Copyright and reproduction rights do not transfer with the sale of a print. Please do not reproduce these images without written permission from me. (It is fine to photograph the framed prints hanging in your house and post the photos on your blog! In fact, that would be totally awesome, and you should send me a link so I can rejoice.)

Color calibrations vary from monitor to monitor, so the colors on your screen may be slightly different from the actual print.

The photo resolution has been reduced for web display. Your purchased print will be a high resolution copy.

GIFT ORDERS
If you would like to include a note to the recipient, please include it in the message-to-sellers box at checkout.

CUSTOM WORK
I can have prints made in increments of one inch between 4x4 and 12x12. Larger sizes are available; if you have a particular frame in mind I may be able to fill it. Please contact me for prices on custom sizes.

Whatever you have in mind, it never hurts to ask! Contact me, and let's talk about your ideas.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Payment
I accept credit cards and PayPal payments in US Dollars. Payment must be made within 24 hours.

The item will be shipped when payment has cleared.

If you are having technical difficulties with the payment process, please contact me. Together we can figure it out!
Shipping
If my estimate of the shipping cost is more than $2 over the actual cost, I will refund the excess through your Paypal account.

I use clean and sturdy recycled or repurposed packaging whenever possible.

I will ship to the address furnished by Etsy. If your Etsy and PayPal addresses differ, please let me know which to use.

I will ship any item anywhere in the world. International customers please note that buyers are responsible for any and all duties and customs charges that may be incurred.

INSURANCE: First class mail (both US and International) does not include insurance or tracking. I use Shipsaver Insurance to insure all packages. This cost is included in my shipping fees.

TRACKING: If you would like your package to be trackable, these are the least expensive methods I know of:
Delivery Confirmation (US) is 80¢
Registered Mail (international) is $11.50
Please ask for an adjusted price before purchase if you would like to include tracking.


Should an item be lost or damaged in transit I will refund your money or replace the item as soon as the insurance claim has been paid.

Priority shipping is available. Please contact me for a price quote.
Refunds and Exchanges
Returns will be handled on an individual basis. Your satisfaction is very important, whether an exchange or a refund is in order. Items must be returned in their original packaging and must be mailed USPS First Class with Delivery Confirmation. I'm afraid that you are responsible for all shipping costs, which are not refundable. Please contact me within a week of receiving your item if there is a problem. Custom orders are nonrefundable unless there is an egregious error on my part.
Additional policies and FAQs
Communication
If you purchase something and change your mind before paying please let me know and I'll cancel the transaction.

Again, if you are having technical issues with Paypal or anything else to do with the transaction, please contact me. I'm a nice person, and will work with you to set things straight.
