New York art critic Vincent Katz selected my work for the Critics Residency program at Maryland Art Place. The yearlong program included an exhibition, a catalogue with a critical review, and a public forum at which I spoke.


•The Light Ekphrastic invited me to participate in their collaborative project with LED Baltimore. The Light Ekphrastic is an online journal that inspires writer/artist collaborations. My work and that of my partner, poet Tracy Dimond, was displayed on LED Baltimore’s ninety-foot digital billboard on Charles Street in Baltimore.

•One of my photographs was selected for the City Panorama Photo-Mural Project in Seattle, Washington. This project is a partnership between the Photo Center NW and the King County Metro to display large-scale photography in public spaces. The photograph is installed in Seattle at the intersection of Olive Way and Terry Avenue.


Gallery Director, Anne Burton, selected my large-scale photographs for a solo exhibition in the Kay Gallery, BlackRock Center for the Arts, Maryland.

The exhibition entitled, Amped-Up, showcased my moving-camera technique. The technique allows me to abstract my photographic compositions and, in the process, capture my own physical responses to the subject. The exhibition presented my visual reaction to the accelerated pace of modern life.


Gioia Milano, Director of Education, Exhibitions, and Programs at the Italian Cultural Center of Maryland, invited me to participate in the exhibition, Leonardo, When the Arts Reach the Sky, at the D/E International Art Gallery, BWI Thurgood Marshall Airport.

The exhibition was Maryland's contribution to the worldwide celebration of the 500th Anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's genius. My photographs were paired with works by Leonardo to reflect on Leonardo's legacy.


Dr. Robert M. Mintz, Chief Curator of the The Walters Art Museum in Baltimore, selected a photograph from my Thespian Landscape portfolio for an exhibition at the The Art Association of Harrisburg.

I have worked in a wide variety of media over my career as a visual artist. Photography has, in one way or another, played an important role in all of my work.

Studying painting with Hilton Brown at Goucher College, I used my photographs to gather ideas for photorealistic paintings.

At the Maryland Institute, College of Art, I completed the photography curriculum, studying color photography with Richard Jaquish. My photographs were shown in several Biennial Exhibitions at the Baltimore Museum of Art, as well as in the Maryland Institute’s gallery spaces.

In my early studio practice, I referenced photographs and created mixed media drawings that toured Japanese museums.

My drawing and photographic work were represented by Meredith Contemporary Art in Baltimore Maryland.

Entering the fine craft marketplace, I created functional and decorative fiber work that included photographic images. My line of fine fiber crafts was selected for American Craft Council shows in Baltimore, San Francisco, California, and Newport, Rhode Island, as well as many other places.

My younger sister’s jewelry work inspired me to develop a line of anodized metal art jewelry that was exhibited in Lyndhurst, New York, Virginia Beach, and Central Pennsylvania Festival of the Arts, as well as many other fine art craft shows. My own abstract photographic compositions were referenced for the color relationships and compositional forms of the jewelry.

When I returned to the practice of photographic art, I began capturing images that were an amalgam of the various art forms I had studied. Today, I approach photography as a multi-media artist. I am awed by the possibilities of digital photography and happy that new technologies enable me to create my own large-scale photographic prints.
