About

I am a photographer, bookmaker and educator based in Rhode Island. I explore human ecology and the complicated relationships people have with the natural world. My experiences with nature were informed by the urban surroundings of my childhood in Queens, NY in the 1970’s. Nature seemed mediated and compromised by human intervention, including my own. My photographs are quiet comments on the disquieting evidence of how humans are playing with our planet.

I have a BA in Art from Union College and an MFA in Visual Studies from the Visual Studies Workshop in Rochester, NY. I teach photography and digital art in workshops, and at the Community College of Rhode Island.
