My story

From b&w photog > mixed media
I live in Santa Cruz Amilpas, Oaxaca, Mexico (a small pueblo 15 minutes from Oaxaca city); for decades I resided in Sonoma County & the San Francisco Bay Area. I’m a visual artist working in mixed media including encaustic monotypes, collage, cold wax & oils, ink, graphite, natural pigments: cochinilla, cempasuchil (marigold), añil (indigo). I am also a visual/art journaler.

I shifted gears: previously I worked in b&w medium format photography for nearly 20 years: fine art and social documentary work, urban landscapes, handmade artist books.

My photography was published in the New York Times Magazine, Camerawork, Photovision, Shots, Foto Pozytyw (Poland) and Focus (Netherlands). It was exhibited in New York City, San Francisco, Chicago and elsewhere in the US, as well as in Germany (Mannheim), and the Netherlands (Amsterdam, Naarden, Enschede, Groningen).
