Giclée Print (pronounced "ghee-clay", French meaning "spraying of ink")
These are Fine Art prints made with a 35mm single lens reflex camera. The transparency was scanned at high resolution and the image printed on watercolor paper using pigment-based archival UltraChrome inks. This combination of inks and paper yields impressive light fastness ratings with prints lasting up to 90 years. The print is mounted on acid free foam core and finished with 100% cotton museum quality mat board.

Having dedicated several years to traditional photography, I became intrigued by the creative possibilities of Polaroid transfers, which offer the artist an almost limitless ability to transform the photographic image. The process is capable of producing fully rendered images with a beautiful softness, as well as partially rendered images reminiscent of ancient frescos. Exploring this art form has enabled me to create unique versions of my original 35mm slides and negatives. These one of a kind images yield a certain mysterious and evocative quality that may not have been inherent to the original composition.

Polaroid Image Transfer Process:
This is an original Polaroid Image Transfer on acid free watercolor paper, mounted on archival backing, and finished with an acid free museum quality mat. It was created by exposing a 35mm slide onto Polaroid Polacolor ER film. The process involves prematurely peeling apart the film, then pressing the negative face down onto paper or another porous material. The image is then sprayed with a protective UV
coating.

Polaroid Emulsion Lift Process:
This is an original Polaroid EmulsionTransfer on acid free watercolor paper, mounted on archival backing, and finished with an acid free museum quality mat. The image was created by exposing a 35mm slide onto Polaroid Polacolor ER film. The print is soaked in hot water until the emulsion becomes loose, then it is transferred onto paper, or another receptor such as glass, fabric, or Mylar. The image is then sprayed with a protective UV coating.

Scandalous Beauty :
Using only fresh cut flowers and the moving lens of my flatbed scanner, I have created over 30 elegant, evocative, sensual and somewhat painterly images of a variety of flowers, which has given birth to my most recent body of work, "Scandalous Beauty”. For me, these images represent many things-elegance, simplicity, complexity, the human form, interpersonal relationships, individuality, love, passion and togetherness. However, I most relate to these images for their basic form, shape, saturated color, composition and strong graphic qualities and enjoy the individual viewer's interpretation.
