NEWS: February 2016
I have been a little too relaxed about this news section, but one of my New Year's resolutions is to change that. So here we go!
After a whirlwind end to 2015, 2016 is off to a running start!
To catch you up:
The artist collective I am a part of, NAPOLEON had a great showing in December with a full group show at COOP Gallery in Nashville, TN; and a small-member group showing at The Satellite Show, Artist-Run, for Art Basel in Miami.
You can see more about those, here:
In January, I was accepted to two juried calls. One at the Black Box Gallery in Portland, OR, for their Black and White: 2016 Exhibition. And to Streit House’s Online Gallery for their exhibition, This Is It!
Check out this, here:

In March, I have work as part of a group show alongside members of NAPOLEON and Tiger Strikes Asteroid at SOIL Gallery in Seattle, WA.

Photo Process Workshop at Tyler School of Art
Great news! I have been given the teaching position for the Photo Process Workshop at the Tyler School of Art for Fall 2008.
It is a wonderful class, which takes nothing for granted. Rather than camera, film and paper, students investigate the "image making device", the "image matrix" and the "image support", as well as presentation - size placement, installation - what have you.
It is a class that truly looks at photography as a mixed media, the most important thing being not what you are using to say something, but that you are able to find the tools you need to say it.
I am a couple of weeks in. My class in wonderful - enthusiastic, critical, hard-working and involved.
