1. Welcome, please tell us about yourself and your background
I was born in St. Louis and started seriously with photography in 1995. I don’t have any formal training in art or photography, but learned my craft using two valuable tools: trial and error. My favorite subjects are dreamy landscapes, cemeteries and the quirky oddities of roadside Americana. Photography fits in well with my passion for nature and travel. I photography the places and things I see as I go about my daily life. I am drawn to alternative process photography , such as Polaroid transfers, emulsion lifts and cyano0types. I still use old printing processes from the 1850′s, so I have one foot in the digital age and another foot 150 yrs in the past.
