In addition to practice in 19th century photography methods, I am an educator at Maine Media Workshops in Rockport, Maine and have taught these materials and methodologies for nearly 30 years to hundreds of students. I have an MFA in photography, exhibit regularly and I am a full-time instructor working with students in darkroom techniques, the history and development of photography as a cultural force and many disciplines within photography’s scope. A 25-year retrospective monograph, A Blue Idyll: Cyanotypes and Dreams, highlighting my work was released in 2020 with Schilt Publishing. The essay was written by the critic Lyle Rexer.
