I've been an artist my entire life.
I started painting classes on Saturday mornings when I was 7, acrylics. Then moved to oil paints and loved the smell and feel of it. I did this for a few years.
I remember making small, 8 x 10 paintings of landscapes and seascapes, some of which I still have.
Now, I make analog photographs and pinhole cameras (seen here, when I was installing some at the New Britain Museum of American Art, Spring 2011)
I also teach the history of photography and historic photographic processes.
