Born to craftsmen, I grew up surrounded by artists and makers. I was always encouraged to work with my hands, to observe the world with fresh vision and enthusiasm, and to fearlessly experiment with new ideas.
In my youth I worked in Philadelphia behind the scenes painting murals for performance artists, production houses, and interiors. By trade, I am a gilder and frame maker for artists, designers, collectors, and museums. The artwork I create is mostly project based. Painted, printed, delineated, carved, or photographed, I produce bodies of work based on either a singular or series of ideas and inspirations.
The images in this exhibit come from the series of Solargraphs and pinhole camera photographs I produced along the Kennebec River in 2014. Beginning at the summer solstice, I set out 120 pinhole cameras along the entire length of the Kennebec River in Maine, from Indian Pond to Phippsburg, and left them out for about 4 months to capture the sun on its daily transit across the sky. As my husband, David Keef, and I traveled the river I took large and medium format and stereo pinhole photographs of the Kennebec and its tributaries.
