Artist Statement

PORTFOLIO 1
THE SOUNDS OF NEW ENGLAND (left column)
Traditional photographic images of the New England landscape. All images are captured on medium format film and scanned at high resolution. Camera may be glass lens, zone plate or pinhole type.

PORTFOLIO 2
JUXTAPOSITION SERIES (right column)
Juxtaposition images may start as photographs, or may start with paint, collage, or monoprint. Images are worked, and re-worked, much like a painting and the process draws from printmaking more than photography.

All prints are made with archival pigment ink on 17 X 22, acid free, 100% cotton based watercolor paper

Artist cards and matching envelopes are available for some images.
