Whether the subject is the constructed landscape, vintage glassware or hand-painted shop signage, my art is focused on artifacts of daily life that show evidence of human touch. I’m a self-taught artist interested in non-traditional applications of photography. In particular, weaving and collage are methods I frequently use. I’m also interested in unexpected viewpoints. The woven structures incorporate many views into one image. The glass series, which are made by layering old plates, bowls, lamps, etc., is photographed from below looking up into the sky. Scratches on the glass hint at the many hands that touched them. History, memory and the fragility of time are reflected in the layers of paint, the chipped glass, the fading letters of a hand-painted shop sign. Each is seemingly insignificant and yet, to me, they are important links to people who came before us and left their unique mark on the earth.
