What if people would agree to share part of their life story and tell me how their mental illness feels? What if I used my skills as a photographer to visually interpret what people told me? -- The goal of this project, "What Mental Illness Feels Like—Images & Stories", is to create an empathic relationship in the viewer through photography and storytelling, decrease stigma and increase awareness of mental illness; and, ultimately, to humanize it.Read More
I was finally able to make it to Hopkins to see the Arts in Harmony 2018 exhibit. OH MY GOSH what a ton of beautiful artwork! One of my favorites was a painting making a social commentary about the pursuit of money—involving Mickey Mouse. Select works from the main Arts in Harmony exhibit are chosen for extended exhibits in travelling shows. And one of mine was chosen!Read More

Two Images Selected for 2018 Exhibit
I really can't believe I've been included for the fourth year in a row in this international exhibit!
This exhibit had a record number of entries this year, and I'm so pumped to have just received notice that TWO were accepted this year!! It's very competitive, and not just photography, but painting, drawing, fiber art, sculpture and more.

A Little About Film Friend
This year I started a patron program called Film Friend. Basically, if you're a patron, you love my work and want to encourage and support me. I know many folks just don't have the room for wall art, but want to support me in some way. This is how you can!
There were some great patrons so far this year, and each received a 4x6 print from each negative from the roll of film they sponsored (usually 36 prints), plus a handwritten narrative about the images. (Yes, I said hand written. Goes well with "old school" film.) The goal was only for me to cover the expense of film, developing, your prints, and mailing costs....Also check out the sample of film images from 2017 so far!Read More
You're invited to Art at Waters Edge! --
Enjoy a relaxing indoor art experience! Light snacks provided! Bring a friend, too. This event is being held inside Barb's home in Avon, Minnesota. Put it on your calendar and I'll see you soon! --- Why out of my home? It's a more relaxed environment for my patrons to see my photographic art, and talk to me in a quieter place than what a typical art fair allows. And because I wanted a better experience for you than just my work, I asked a few artist friends to join me — and they said yes!Read More
