I've been lucky enough to work with and be inspired by several remarkable artists/teachers including: Joan Albert, David Akiba, and Bruce Davidson.

I work with a 4x5 press camera, a Holga, a 6x6 Bronica and for color work I've recently begun experimenting with a digital camera.
Printmaking is relatively new to me and Elaine Bay of The Miracle 5 has been an invaluable resource and guide on that score amongst many others.
