Denis Roussel Award 2019 Recognition

I am honored and so very happy to have my handmade books included in the list of 'Outstanding Work,' in the Denis Roussel Award submissions for 2019. A big thank you to juror, Jesseca Ferguson-- and to the Rfotofolio folks (Connie & Jerry Rosenthal)— for the honor and recognition, and for putting this Award together. Denis was such an inventive, imaginative artist, fully realizing his vision-- leaving a beautiful body of work-- so I'm thrilled to be connected in this way, and to be in such great company among this list of artists, which includes a few of my very favorite photographers/print-makers. And you can read more about it here.

Summer Blues!

‘Summer Blues,’ an exhibit conceived and curated by Hamilton Ward, of Charlotte, North Carolina, is a group invitational celebrating the wonderful 19th century process of Cyanotype— the Blue Print— in all its possibilities.

And, below this poster, is just one of the eight prints that I’ll be showing.

Hope to see you at the opening at GoodYear Arts, in Charlotte, on July 12!

I am honored to have my work featured in #NoFilter, by Natalia Price-Cabrera, published in May 2019. It’s a fantastic book she put together, filled with creative ideas from creative artists from all over the world. Small, perfectly square, and jam-packed with illustrations and accessible how-to information. Definitely worth having on your bookshelf!!
