self-portrait class . June 2014 . teaser


Self-portraiture has helped shape me as a photographer and as a woman; it has been a touchstone and a way to find confidence in my work and in myself. Self-portraits are the personal work that keeps my creative engines fed.

Selfie is a new word in the dictionary but artists have been using self-portraiture as a way to look inward at themselves and share their own visions of who they are for hundreds of years.  This  June I am teaching a four week self-portrait workshop  in my studio downtown Ann Arbor.  We’ll be working together to explore learning how to not only take a self-portrait but how self-portraiture can be used to inspire and build confidence.   Classes will include sharing of assigned work so a camera is the only requirement.  I’ll be announcing all the deets next week but I wanted to put it out there and get gears spinning.  If you are interested in being emailed the information as soon as it’s published please don’t hesitate to make a comment down below, your email will not be shared.   If you are just curious you can sign up too OR just check back here next week.

I am so excited to be sharing  an especially meaningful part of my work.

I still keep a blog, it's consistently regularly updated but not often. I like it because I can go back almost 10 years and see how I've grown and changed as an artist and how my studio has changed along with me.


Sharing my latest work both personal and commercial. Leave a comment or say hello :)
