How My art Happened...

I have recycled myself. With a damaged body and soul
that had been tossed into the trash pile of injury, pain killers
and emotional conflict, my personal recycling journey
was a series of experiments both in life and in my art.

I left my career at the age of 55. I finished my degree in graphic design honing my skills and passion for photography. I have developed a desire for alternative process photography. I am interested in discarded materials to display my images on, combining images of time and place with scanned items relevant to the same time and place plus, unconventional materials and images.


"SALVAGED"  is the result of my own recycling journey
and the first in my alternative processes.

"LAYERS" An exploration of alternative process photography and paper collage embracing the Japanese concept
of wabi-sabi.  

"ON THE STREETS" contains photos from my obsession
with Street Photography.

"CRACKLE PANELS" is much more Fine Art  in nature.

"COMMISSIONS" featuring contracted work.

"MORTAL REMAINS" items discarded and now given a voice.

Photography and Mixed Media

From classic black and white street photos on gloss paper to photos printed on recycled metal or mixed media photo collage, it all lives in my world!
