I have been photographing the textures of the people and places I love for the past 30 years. I am inspired by the beauty that surrounds me, especially in the two places I call home: the San Juan Islands of Washington State, and Lake Atitlan in Guatemala. My work has evolved over the years to incorporate new technologies to create very unique images which are then transferred on to metals, wood, hand made papers and other interesting substrates. The final product is a combination of painting, mixed media and photographic technique.Working with wax and encaustic techniques is my latest passion.
