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.
