The Last Few Years
As a photographer I am interested in the intersection of the past and the present. Over the years I have enjoyed the challenge of trying to represent an alternate universe where perception and reality either collide or collaborate.
Recently, I began to contextualize my documentary and fine art images. My mentors encouraged me to further develop and share my project-based work. The pandemic pushed me forward. There is no turning back.
In 2023, StudioWorks at the Tide Institute and Museum of Art in Eastport, ME offered me a one-month summer residency. In the prior year, the Constance Saltonstall Foundation awarded me a Fellowship in Photography with an artist's residency. I am grateful for those who have honored my work and continue to encourage my endeavors.
My diptych, Burial, was selected by gallerist/curator Deborah Klomp Ching for an April 2023 juried group exhibition in NYC, "Same But Different," sponsored by the New York Center for Photographic Arts.
My photograph, Hanging On, was selected by curator Lisa Volpe for inclusion inThe Griffin Museum of Photography's 29th Annual Member Show, opening in April 2023.
Street Encounters was my first museum exhibition. Held at the Arlington Museum of Art in 2020, this group show was curated by Paula Tognarelli. The photo, Historic Site (Israel), was taken at the Inn of the Good Samaritan.
In April 2021, Birthing Clinic Road (Uganda) was selected by juror Victoria Burns as one of 25 works for display on billboards in Los Angeles for The Creative Billboard's 7th Annual Juried Exhibition celebrating emerging artists.
In 2022, Vantage Point was my second museum group exhibition. It was curated by Crista Dix of the Griffin Museum of Photography. Anse a la Croix (Guadeloupe) [see below] sits precariously at the ocean's edge, offering hope.
Awards & More Exhibits
My work has received a number of awards and has been exhibited in two Barcelona Biennales. Recently, I received the Grand Prize for "Birthing Clinic Road," in an international competition hosted by The New York Center for Photographic Arts. Earlier I was received First Prize awards for two separate series, as well as First and Second Prizes for individual photos in the 17th Julia Margaret Cameron competition in 2022 and Honorable mentions in the 16th JMC competition. In 2021, juror Jan Howard honored my work with Third Prize at the Rhode Island Center of Photographic Art's exhibition, All Together Now.

My images have also appeared in other gallery shows and online in the literary journal, Reservoir Road.
