Happy New Year! I hope everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and an enjoyable 2010. For the past several months I have been working on images for my series in progress, Becoming We. Many of the images express the life changing experiences I have had this year, among them getting married, building a home and my upcoming Auntie-hood. A selection of Becoming We images are now on my website.
In addition to these personal milestones of 2010 I have a lot to be thankful for in my photographic career as well. In this newsletter I have included the events I feel most fortunate and proud to have been involved in along with some upcoming exhibitions for the start of the new year.
Wishing you all happiness and peace in 2011,
This Spring I will be teaching Intro to Alternative Photographic Processes at Art Institute of Boston.
Returning this summer to Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT is the very popular Alternative Photographic Processes class. It begins June 2nd and runs for 5 weeks..
A workshop on the Ziatype process at PhotoSynthesis in Manchester, CT is in the works. Stay tuned. Date: TBA
