Artist Statement:

In fifth grade I had a very special teacher who held an after-school, once a week arts program for her students: “The Scribble and Sketch Club”. I read once that what you love to do in fifth grade is what you need to pursue in life. That is certainly true with me since my retirement seven years ago. I am now doing scribbling and sketching (with my camera) and imagine Miss Garber looking down and smiling.

The people who inhabit my photos in my Hands Portrait and Histories series are the story. They are mostly extraordinary people living ordinary lives. I hope that my photos and writing tell stories that will help the viewer to understand the people and landscapes portrayed. I am so pleased to honor them by sharing their photos and stories. I am also very grateful that they have allowed me to do this.

I take most of the hands photos candidly, either as I’m talking with the person or as they are working or showing me around their studio, house, or workplace. I shoot digitally, develop in Photoshop and print with an inkjet printer.

I know my work is not perfect and that I will constantly be searching for improvement and knowledge. But it is heartening to know that my work is “good enough” to be recognized for this MAI grant. I hope that I have brought something of value, not only to the viewer, but especially to the people who have partnered with me to make my photos possible. Like my photography, I am continually ‘developing’.
