I am a photo-based artist, with an educational background in the natural sciences and 40 years of experience as a professional photographer in the editorial and commercial world. My personal practice brings these elements of my history together, using them to explore the world through the nature of time and organic forms. I collect objects, items from my past and botanicals which I often manipulate and dry to construct stilllifes to be photographed revealing stories through these compositions. In all my series, my assemblages and portraits connect the viewer to the ecological cycles of the natural world, including their own aging and mortality.

My work has been shown in galleries, museums and group shows in North America and Europe.
