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.

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!
