“Buddha with Blue Light”, 2018  Digital Print

“Buddha with Blue Light”, 2018

Digital Print

Along with other members of WAN (Winchester Artist Network) I’m showing “Buddha with Blue Light” at the Winchester Public Library 80 Washington Street Winchester, MA

This digital print is part of my on-going work with Light-Painting photography. For years I have been experimenting with long shutter speeds and the movement of various light sources to create a single frame of layered light and subject. I use the light source as a painting tool during the long exposure. Check out some other pieces I’ve done at this link using this technique here:

This layered digital image is the result of my fascination with the night sky and archeological finds concerning matriarchal societies. I photographed the Venus of Willendorf  on New Year’s Eve at her home, the Museum of Natural History, Vienna. On January 21, 2019, with an 800mm lens, I captured the Super Blood Moon full lunar eclipse. Composing the stages of the eclipse spelling out MOON. (period) and elevating the Venus speaks to the significance of the female cycle and the ancient reverence of women.

“Venus and Moon.” is on view as part of the Collage/Mixed Media/Digital (The Art of Layering) exhibit hosted by National Association of Women Artists - NAWA Gallery 315 W 39th St, Suite 508, New York, NY 10018

Your Young”

“Roundup® Your Young” 2018

Assemblage 60”H x 30W x 23D


Inspired by the ancient bee goddess found engraved on onyx, Knossos Crete, c. 1500 BC — this assemblage attempts to raise awareness on the harmful effects herbicides have on nature and ourselves. Glyphosate (found in Roundup®) is widely used in agriculture and gardens. The effects it is having on bees especially the honeybee is critical and the link between glyphosate and non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, can no longer be ignored. “Roundup® Your Young” is a call to arms on behalf of the bee and ourselves. Monsanto, now owned by Bayer, mass produce these harmful chemicals and market them with little warning. Tons are sprayed on our agriculture annually and consumers in search for that lush green lawn have aisles of herbicides displayed prominently in every Lowes and Home depot across the country.
