I am happy to announce that I have been accepted to Artist Trust's Edge Program in Port Townsend this summer, where I will participate in a week-long professional development conference alongside fourteen other selected artists at Centrum, culminating with an artist's presentation at a local arts space (TBA).

I am thrilled to have had artwork included in Artist Trust's Juried Silver Benefit 25th Auction at Fisher Pavillion. The event was incredible, with silk aerialists pouring champagne from the sky and a beautiful performance by Creative Capitol award winner Paul Rucker. I have added a great deal of new work, including my auction piece, and many other works made in Washington state over the past few months. I also recently returned from Mexico, where I photographed ancient ruins, wild blue ocean, and my mother in a nunnery from 1755. Be sure to parooze the new work.

After an intense summer and early fall of shooting in the Pacific Northwest, Quebec, and New England, I had the fabulous opportunity to exhibit Mobile, my newest series of work, at Seattle's Nepo House. The event was a collaboration with filmmaker Shaun Scott, featuring my photographic works and a screening of his second documentary film, "Waste of Time."

I Dream of India, my newest collbaroation with Hanni Fox, Jenny Bowker, is up for your viewing pleasure. Devra Fox, our beautiful model, portrays the morning ritual of a world-traveling femme fatal and her chic Capitol Hill lifestyle.

My recent New Work Preview with fellow artist Rafael Soldi at Photo Center Northwest was a great success! We still have a few sets of our benefit collective print edition. Each set includes two photographs, one by each artist, beautifully printed and packaged. The prints are 11x14" Archival Pigment Ink Prints in a limited edition of 25. The sales of all prints directly support our practice, allowing us to continue to make work and further our artistic careers. PRICE: $125.00. To see the images, click here.

I recently donated a limited edition of ten prints to Wall Space Gallery's Life Support Japan Benefit. All proceeds go to Habitat for Humanity and Direct Relief International's efforts in Japan. So far this benefit has raised over $25,000 to help Japan, with an end goal of $50,000. You can help by browsing the many beautiful images on the Wall Space site!

One of my pieces was selected for Todd Jannausch's newest art installation, which is currently being displayed in Seattle's Pioneer Square. Gallery (206) was a city phone booth that is being repurposed into a new public art space. The phone booth houses nineteen plexi-glass panels all containing art, an audio installation in the phone, and the work of 186 Seattle artists in the phone book, representing a total number of 206 artists. This phone booth has been installed in Occidental Park for the month of June, 2011.

Panorama II, 2010

Two of my pieces were recently chosen to go up on Seattle Metro bus stops as part of Photo Center Northwest's City Panorama Project. Both works are black and white triptychs compiling work from Roadside America. These images will be displayed on nine foot wooden panels on Seattle bus shelters through 2021. More info to come soon.

Two photographs from Roadside America were published in Photo Center Northwest's annual Publication, Photo Center Northwest Volume IV, which is available for purchase at Blurb.com.
