I will be returning to Digital Silver Imaging on Saturday May 13th for another Ziatype palladium printing workshop. This process is easy to grasp and extremely variable, with tweaks to the chemistry used in the sensitizer yielding spectacular shifts in color and tone. If you have ever had an interest in learning platinum or palladium printing, this workshop is a great way to get your feet wet. This will be open to newbies and to those who have taken my previous workshop and would like to build on that experience. Spots are filling up---check Digital Silver's website for sign up and DM me if you have questions!
An exhibit of site-responsive sculpture presented by Studios Without Walls is currently on view in Riverway Park, Boston, MA near the Longwood T stop. Included is one of my environmental sculptures, another iteration of the creature known as Qwgklak. If you take the Longwood T or are catching a Red Sox game, why not take a stroll through the park and catch the exhibit? Hint: if you go, be sure to walk around the tree for additional hidden surprises.

I will be returning to Digital Silver Imaging in Belmont, MA for another workshop in Ziatype palladium printing on Saturday, January 14th.

We will be working under the twinkly lights, so extend that holiday feeling and join us to learn this versatile and user-friendly printing process!

Sculptural versions of creatures from my Fells mythology are lording it over and lurking about the woods at Old Frog Pond in Harvard, MA through Oct. 10. Some smaller ceramic artifacts are also on view. This Sunday afternoon there is a reception for the included artists and a guided tour, as well as live music --- come on out! It's a beautiful setting!
UPDATE: Though the sculpture walk has officially ended, I have been invited to leave my installations in place for the winter and document them as they enter their phase of entropy and decomposition.
My image Tooth and Claw has been selected for the Soho 2016 Annual Alternative Process Competition Show at Soho Gallery, NYC, opening November 1st! I am so pleased to be presented along with a number of respected peers, heroes, mentors, friends, and colleagues! I hope to attend the opening, so if you are in town please stop in and say hello :)
My creatures are out lording it over and lurking about the woods at Old frog Pond for the annual sculpture walk! Running now through October 10th, the annual event features work by sculpture artists throughout New England and I am thrilled to be in such amazing company. The venue was kind enough to use a photograph of one of my installations on the promo material, pictured here. My work is featured in two locations and incorporates my plant monsters with new ceramic artifacts. The creatures are meant to decompose over time, so I would encourage visitors to go early and then check back towards the end of the run to observe how nature begins to reclaim these materials. Info at the two links listed here. Images from the installation are in the process of being added to the Sculpture and Installation page of the website.
Here are a few pics from the Longwood workshop. The highlight for me was donning gaiters and getting to wade into the famous water gardens to gather materials for the workshop! I was plant-geeking out so hard! Sometimes vantage point is what it's all about and I'll never have this one again, so I have posted a photo. Many thanks to Matt Ross, Longwood Continuing Education coordinator for all the help and support. The class participants made some amazing images, of which these are just a few. What a privilege and honor to be there!
It's been a really busy summer teaching and running workshops, and all my students, youths and adults, have turned out some amazing work! Next on the agenda is the workshop in cyanotype process at Longwood Gardens outside Philadelphia in Kennett Square, PA. We will be using materials from the famous water gardens to make images in the historic cyanotype printing method. This one promises to be really fun!
Digital Silver in Belmont, MA has invited me to give a workshop in the Ziatype printing process on Saturday August 6th. The workshop will run all day with a break for lunch and we will be printing on the new Hahnemuhle platinum rag paper with promotional support from Hahnemuhle! Participants will learn to create digital negatives and will go home with prints made using this versatile palladium based process. Fun and experimental---this will be an enjoyable day! Info available through Digital Silver.

I am pleased to be teaching several courses again this summer in the Youth Program at Lesley, a pre-college experience for high school students. These kids are doing some amazing work so far, including printing using only chlorophyll as seen in our set up here. From exploring Boston with their phone cameras to blending sculpture and photography to alternative process, they are handling everything I am throwing at them!
