Jefferson City, Tennessee

I make composite photographs using a variety of my own color and silver gelatin photographic prints that I have shot over a period of 25+ years, in a variety of locations. I'm still using film and have not yet done any original digital photo capture. I also make alternative process prints and composites with methods such as liquid light and cyanotype. My work is about the various possibilities and choices that photography itself offers.

Areas of Expertise

My work is included in the permanent collections of a dozen museums, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, the California Museum of Photography, and the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art.

Professional Affiliations

I was born and raised in Columbus, Ohio, and will always consider myself a mid-westerner. I grew up with grids, and I love 'em.

I finished my MFA (at Florida State University) in 1990, and began teaching art and photography the same year at Carson-Newman College, in Tennessee. I'm still at Carson-Newman College teaching, and I've been the Chairperson of our Art Department since 2000.
