My recent photographs began as meditations upon the forms, colors and patterns of marine mollusk exoskeletons found around the world. Neutral backgrounds and shallow space focused attention upon single forms. As my approach to image making evolved, I altered the forms of the shells and placed them in imaginary environments. Gradually, other forms from nature were introduced.


I discovered Metropolitan Picture Frames while attending an American Association of Museums meeting in Minneapolis 20 years ago, and was immediately impressed by the contemporary frame profiles, superb construction and beautiful finishes. I particularly like the flexibility Metropolitan Picture Frames offer. As my work has evolved over the years, it’s been relatively easy to recycle and reframe my newer images using the same frames due to their efficient design. Also impressive is the outstanding customer service offered by Metropolitan Picture Frames.

I use Nikon and iPhone 4s cameras, an Epson Stylus Pro 7900 printer and Epson Ultrachrome HDR inks to produce my archival ink jet prints on Epson Hot Press Natural, acid-free, 100% cotton fiber paper.
