MEET THE ARTIST

A little about me...

   I have been an analog photographer for over twenty years; the magic of the darkroom captured me from a young age.  A large collection of my work has always been self portraiture, however, since living abroad in my teens I have paired photography and travel as a way to bridge societal divides and explore the universal human spirit.  Despite language barriers, I have found so much can be conveyed with a smile and a gesture. 

 

My degree is in Human Development and I have an insatiable curiosity of psychology and sociology.  At the heart of my work is a deep reverence and respect for all people and their culture regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation and nationality.

About my medium and community...

   I am involved deeply in the arts and analog photography scene in the Pacific Northwest, USA.  I am an original member of The Portland Darkroom, a community darkroom that also does outreach and classes.  I am also an artist/owner of Blackfish Gallery, one of the nation's original artist owned coops which celebrating it's 44th year.  In addition, I host The Artist’s Union, a Portland based critique group and workshop that mentors up and coming queer analog photographers. 

 

I am passionate about all form of photography and art, particularly gallery based installation.  My medium varies by project but includes digital, medium format, photo booth, video, Polaroid and mixed media installation.
