Although I built my career as a portrait photographer, I have always experimented with other art techniques such as painting, printmaking and collage. Often the resulting product blends photography with whatever my new-found favorite medium happens to be. In a way, this allows me to rediscover my love for photography over and over again through different materials.

When a dear friend introduced me to cyanotype prints, I was hooked. The cyanotype process has similarities to film photography, and it took me back to earlier days, before I made the switch to digital. In this series I started with some of my original photographs that highlight a handful of my loved ones and my reverence for nature; then I watched them transform through the cyanotype process into one-of-a-kind prints.
