How do we find our way through dark times? One of life’s great surprises is how, even when the heart has been broken open from grief, we can still find moments of light and joy. For me, a moment of sadness may be transformed into one of profound delight when I stop and immerse myself in the sound of the wind in the trees, the curve of a blade of grass, light shimmering on the ocean, or simply the sensations of breath itself. In the Adagio series, as petals float and dance through time, I celebrate these moments of joy-filled connection that have been so uplifting during difficult times.

In the waning days of autumn, after the parting burst of colour, I explored tidal pools and puddles where leaves had fallen. There I expected to see fading and decay, but instead I often found subtle beauty, intensified by the twilight and encroaching darkness. For me these images conjure up wisps of memories of my mother and her decline through Alzheimer's where there too, as I watched the fading away, the softening of lines, the dissolution of realities, I caught glimpses of her inner beauty shining in the darkness.
Uncharted Constellations #9, from a new series (see more), was recently selected for inclusion in an exhibit in Cambridge, MA.
University Place Gallery
12 March-17 April, 2015
Opening: 12 March (6-8PM)
"Uncharted Constellations" is a meditation on the mystery of the night sky, but with stars that have never been seen before; stars that have been charted only in my imagination. These are dreams of star-filled landscapes, gathered from memories of my travels around the world, re-imagined in the mid-winter snows of northern Maine. Some evoke memories of the desert hills outside Tucson; others the foothills of Nepal or of gazing deep into a clear night sky from a village in the Philippines. These uncharted constellations recall the fluidity of time, space, and memory and the endless wonder of the stars.
I am delighted to report that two images that I created this past winter are to be included in the National All Media Exhibition at the Chico Art Center. To see more from the Frozen Light series, please click here. And to see more from the Flow series, please click here.

Kingman Gallery, a new photography gallery in northern Maine, will be representing my work from 25 May to 14 October. Images selected by the gallery include those from the following series:
Deer Isle, Maine
Opening: 25 May
Flow # 8 will be on display at the following gallery in Pennsylvania:
15 June-24 July
I received two honorable mention awards from the 2013 International Photography Awards competition. Both are awards in the Fine Art: Abstract category. One award is for Flow #1 and the other is for the Flow series, of which Flow #1 is part.
It's always heartening to receive a nod from prominent photography professionals (the jurors) for a body of work that is especially meaningful -- both visually and emotionally -- to me.
