With almost 30 years of photography behind me, I have seen and enjoyed many photographic processes from black and white film to digital. In the early 1990s, I began using infrared film and hand-coloring my infrared images, creating and exhibiting series including classic cars and carnival rides. In 1995, I was introduced to making artists’ books, individual books which use collage, photography, printing and other techniques. This allowed me to use my photography in ways other than matting and framing. Creating artists books challenged me to sequence images to tell a story, paying particular attention to form and craftsmanship
In moving from film to digital photography, I began exploring mixed media and collage, using my own photographic images as points of departure. What I find intriguing about collage is combining images and materials from different sources and contexts to create new pieces with a new meanings. I enjoy the craft aspect of decorating paper, using paste and various printing techniques. I have combined these techniques along with my photography in this show “In Pieces.”
I have exhibited my work in solo and group shows since the 1980s. As a member of the Sunday Photography Group, ARTXII, the Boston Book Arts, and f8, I have participated in collaborative and collective exhibitions in the Worcester area.
