Artist Bio

I grew up in McHenry County, Illinois, one of the most rapid growing counties in the nation. Watching the landscape surrounding my hometown go through dramatic changes over the years has had an enormous influence on my artistic development. I am critically engaged with the landscape through my artwork and use photography to explore concepts of both natural and urban environments.
The photographs featured in Particles on the Wall represent a selection of work from the series, “Chain Reaction: Circum‐navigating the Hanford Nuclear Reservation.” This body of work examines the barren landscape surrounding the largest nuclear waste dump in the Western Hemisphere. Traveling the perimeter of the site I encounter numerous rest stops, abandoned settlements, and wildlife sanctuaries. The ironies that result from the juxtaposition of two very different landscapes‐ the recreational site and the Superfund site become the focus of this series.

Currently, I serve as the Curator of Education and Collections at the Museum of Art/Washington State University and photography area coordinator and faculty member at Columbia Basin College in Pasco, WA. Recent recognitions include Washington State's Grant for Artists Projects Award, the Pingyao International Photography Exhibition in China, and the Council for Advancement and Support of Education Award Photographer of the Year award.
