I first fell in love with the magic of photography using a Fisher Price 110 camera during a 3rd grade field trip. High school photography class further cemented this, allowing me to see the possibilities through alchemy and light. Changing career directions within the medium has allowed me to experience various aspects of photography, moving from photojournalism to studio work and into fine art. Now, I see how each part of those career paths influences what I create today, something I am grateful for.
Currently, I am in my 14th year of teaching photography at Spokane Falls Community College. Previously, I taught at the University of Memphis, as well as with the Art Institute of Pittsburgh, teaching various photography and art history courses. I create and exhibit work internationally and teach workshops in alternative processes and handmade book structures.
