I am a photographer who works primarily in black and white. The sources for my style of photography are my past experience with black-and-white film and the art and culture of East Asia. As an undergraduate at the University of New Mexico, I had coursework in photography, Chinese brush painting, and the philosophy, history, and language of East Asia. Following graduate school at Queen’s University, Kingston, Canada, and a postgraduate fellowship at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, I became a conservator for the Smithsonian Institution’s museums of Asian art. This role led to frequent travels in Asia while, at the same time, I continued my pursuit of photography. My work has been selected for publication and a number of juried national exhibitions, and I am represented by Calloway Fine Art & Consulting (www.callowayart.com), Washington D.C. I now divide my time between Washington and Phoenix.
