Photogram Contact Print. Black & White negative printed with pinned mixed insect specimen relief
Everything I have known up until 2019 has been three dimensional art. It is time for a change. Experimental prints from my at home darkroom studio include photograms and negatives developed with the added medium of dried and preserved insects from my collection. Where 2D & 3D worlds collide.
I have been a Public School Art Teacher for the last 5 years, and I feel more excitement for art as each day passes. I hope to inspire my students to stay creative and curious, just as they ignite creativity in me.
My main focus in on Jewelry and Metal Sculpture, but I have recently built a darkroom at home and have been exploring in contact prints and alternative photography processes. Every day is a new adventure.
