My work centers on color and place, with a strong graphic component. In my photography, color has always been a magnet. And my fascination with places has led to an exploration of how to express the sense of a city or a patch of woods by combining my images with other information. As an artist, I sometimes think of myself as a prospector, digging among the images and memories I've assembled over the years and following my curiosity to learn and dream about places I have yet to visit. I try to hold those feelings of discovery and inquiry as I create each mixed-media work, weaving together my photographs, painted surfaces, and bits of maps, old pages, or even wax.
