I am a photographer and songwriter living in New Orleans. My photographic works use a variety of mediums - lumen printing, a 19th century photo process, 35mm and a smidge of digital - 20th and 21st century processes respectively. My photographic adventures began with 35mm film in 1999. I learned how to shoot by how to print so the two go hand in hand for me. I quickly became interested in hand coloring photographs and alternative styles of printing, making solarizations and using liquid emulsion. Years later, inspired by the need to recycle the boxes of expired photo paper tucked away in my kitchen cabinets, I began working with the lumen print process. Using only sunlight to imprint the image on to photographic paper, a lumen print captures the natural and pure beauty of our world. I was hooked from the first lumen print I made, and am always exploring new subjects and techniques within this process.
As a songwriter I write and perform songs that tell the tale of the world as I know it, sometimes creating narratives that merge my photographs and songs into a one-woman multimedia performance, the most recent being a chronicle of my World Tour, "Louisiana - the State of My World".
