About the Book
This is the un-abridged photo collection of the 2008 Ab Roller Calendar. There were just too many good images to limit it to 12 pages. . . so the book was born. This book is dedicated to Melissa DuCasse, her struggle with the physical therapy, and her infamous and stoic return to rock and "roll".
Melissa is my best friend, rhythm guitarist in my band, and a fellow artist who was in a terrible car accident in May 2007 and is only now just beginning to walk again. My friends and I pulled together to make this humorous and inspirational calendar to help her through her physical therapy.

I am primarily an artist. I dabble in a variety of media including illustration, wood, paint, digital collage, screen printing, fashion, instillation, performance art, and now yes. . .photography. I am also a wife/mother and I live with my husband and daughter in the Bradenton Village of the Arts. I am a bass player/singer in the punk band Gigi and the Cretins (my hubby plays drums). I am also the founder and jammer/blocker/pivot of the Bradentucky Bombers roller derby league. . . and that's about it. ( :
