My current work is comprised of photo image transfers. After finding traditonal methods of photo transfer too toxic, I began to experiment with printing on vellum with my Epson archival ink printer, and transferring that onto archival paper.

Each image is a series of nine or twenty segments that are manually laid down one after the other. This process gives my work a dream-like quality that is reminiscent of pin-hole photography or work with a Holga camera. Because the process is affected by temperature and humidity, the results change with each image, creating a unique print.

The result is a fusion of modern digital imagery with a traditional hands-on technique.
