About

We Need More Art.

Photography is my passion. Its always been my passion. And I firmly believe that we should all have art - original, authentic art - hanging in our homes.
My current photographic "thing" is all about antique photographic processes. These are methods of printing developed around the turn of the last century. They are labor intensive, time intensive, and lovely.
A typical workday in the darkroom for me begins by checking the weather, because the best way to make a print with an antique photographic method, is with the sun. Cloudless skys guaranteed, I scurry into the darkroom to mix up my chemicals and paint them on watercolor paper. When dry, I sandwich my now-light-sensitive paper with a negative and expose it in the sun (contact print it). Develop in water and, voila - photograph.
My subject matter is all over the place. I love where I live, so you'll find a lot of Maine landscapes in my work. I love rusty, rundown industrial stuff. I love to garden and hike, and I often have my camera on me.
When I'm not in the darkroom, I'm bookbinding, teaching, gardening, hiking, cooking or spending time with my wonderful family (including a sassy rescue mutt).

    I love the smell of a darkroom. I am a nut for antique photographic processes, the time and labor intensive ones. I've studied photography forever, including one lucky year at Speos, the Paris Photographic Institute.
