Artist StatementI have become a gatherer of the flotsam and jetsam often overlooked for its non-conformity with the commonplace becautifl. I am interested in the recurring structure in nature -- a barnacle-encrusted shell like a moonscape, an asteroid spinning in the void; grains of sand, the stars. I photograph the tracks, the remnants of teh inhabitants of another time frame; I collect objects that are a record of something that passes unnoticed. I was trained as a painter at the University of Washington and at Indiana University, wehre i graduated with a MFA in 1970. I began photographing three years ago. I have taught photography at Portland State University and Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, and am presently an assistant professor of art at several group shows and had my first one-person exhibition of photographs at Camera Works Gallery in 1982; another is scheduled in Portland for this spring.
