"roots": These are individual wet-plate collodion tintyptes that I photogrammed, scanned, collaged, and printed. All roots are from my backyard.
"my big backyard": Images from my backyard and surrounding areas serve to symbolize the bounty and beauty of all Earth.
"painting with light": Photography depends upon light and I use both to create "abstract" paintings.
"sculpting with detritus": I regard others' discards as potential art material. I reuse these to create sculptures and to preserve our Earth's resources.
