2024 CPA Artist Grant!

The Center for Photographic Art has released the names of the 2024 Artist Grant Recipients and I am incredibly honored and excited to be among them!  My sincere thanks to the CPA selection committee, who reviewed over 200 submissions and awarded grants to five artists.

 Four of the recipients will present their work at an exhibition in the Spring of 2025. I am delighted for the opportunity to exhibit alongside fellow grantees Maria Isabel Saez LeBlanc, Katie Shapiro, and Matthew Finley. You can learn more about the program and awards at this link.

Carl Cherry Center for the Arts

I’m happy to share that our ImageMakers group exhibition “Frame of Mind” is traveling to the Carl Cherry Center for the Arts in January. I invite you to both the opening reception on 1/12 and the “Meet the Artists” event on 1/27.  Details in the announcement below.

About this exhibition:

Each photographer has provided a “frame of mind” statement to accompany their image which gives some insight into their creative process. Are they telling a story, conveying a message, expressing a feeling, mood or emotion, communicating an idea? How do they accomplish their objective – use of light, color, line, shapes or forms, techniques?

As viewers, we draw on our own experiences, thoughts, and emotions to form our response to any work of art. We invite you to explore the interaction between your own “frame of mind” and that of the artists in this diverse exhibition.

FRAMES Magazine Article

Endless thanks to arts writer Diana Nicholette Jeon and Frames Magazine for including my “Folding and Mending” work in the latest issue of “The Female Gaze.” In this issue, Diana has curated a group of women photographers who “think outside the frame” in exciting ways. She provides a unique perspective on the blending of process and concept in these bodies of work. 

Interconnected is one of my pieces Diana featured. You can check out the article at this link.
