    Statement

    My work is part of a long tradition in art and photography: to bring to light and find beauty, most especially in the disregarded - the unconscious, the banal, the unpleasant - not in the service of commerce or reportage, but with integrity, compassion, and generosity.

    Biography

    I am an artist, educator, and activist working primarily with photography and motion pictures. I received a B.A. in Fine Arts from the University of Pennsylvania and an M.F.A. in Photography from Indiana University. Awards for my work include the Ferguson Grant from the Friends of Photography in San Francisco, CA for excellence and commitment to the field of photography. My photographs have been exhibited throughout the United States including a solo show at the Center for Photography in Woodstock, NY. I currently teach Multimedia Art at Berkeley City College in Berkeley, California, and Photography at St. Mary's College in Moraga, California.

    SIREN Baroque kicks off its third season with Fyer, Fyer!, the first of four concerts exploring the ancient elements, in a special collaboration with the innovative baroque dancers Laura Careless and Marisol Cabrera. The program features blazingly passionate works by Morley, Monteverdi, Rebel, Scarlatti, and Handel, all of which use fire as a metaphor for nature’s wrath, spiritual zeal, lustful ardor, or the terrors of hell. With SIREN Baroque’s “impassioned performances” (Early Music America) accompanied by strikingly seductive choreography, it promises to be an evening to ignite the senses.
