The process breaks down as follows:

In phase one, I meet with the client as often as may be necessary for me to collect the information that I need. All work can be done via email and phone. Over the course of these visits the photos will be selected, labeled and scanned.  The dimensions of the finished piece is determined at this time.

All information is original and is taken from family photographs, documents, photographed artifacts and original elements that I create based on the client’s personal preferences in art and design.  

In the second phase, I will prepare these elements on the computer and begin working on composition. We will meet as needed to discuss the direction of the piece.

In the third phase I will be creating the work and at the end of this phase I will present you with an archival print of your original artwork or book.

Then the process is complete.

It typically takes one to four months to complete a work. I charge by the hour; the time to completion, and the cost, depend on a number of factors, the most important of which is the amount of source material.

Let's get started!


Using scanned family photographs and photographs of important artifacts as a starting point, I record and illuminate the stories of previous generations, transforming a personal or family story into an evocative, original work of art. I work in two formats: a book or a print.

My artistic vision is inspired by the enigmatic face of collected personal experience. I strive to capture the everyday and the extraordinary in the same net, providing the viewer with a fresh perspective on both.

In the book format, my goal is to do more than merely assemble a collection of photographs and names. Anecdotes, family lore and personal memories are central to recreating and preserving the flavor of our personal family histories. For example, in creating my own family book, I have included my father's WWII stories: remarkable events that would otherwise be lost to time. That said, I make every effort not to interpret or elaborate, but rather to put these pieces together carefully and thoughtfully and allow the story to tell itself.

In this way, I address a broad spectrum of themes, including childhood, home and the pivotal events of a life. The final product is an archival-quality book or print inspired by the aesthetic sensibility of a mural.
