It has been an exciting year for me and my work. I wanted to take a few moments to share a little about my work and what has happened so far in 2017. 

I started the year with opening of, "Wild Things," a look at how Alaskans bring wildness into their not-so-wild places. This body of work hung in the Fairbanks Arts Association Bear Gallery. 

I spoke about my photography and discussed, "Wild Things," at the Friends of the Sheldon Jackson Museum annual meeting in Sitka, Alaska. This event coincided with the opening of the Alaska Museums Alaska Positive photography exhibition. A piece from, "Wild Things," was included in Alaska Positive. 

I just concluded a month-long artist residency at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, NM. I created an printed a new body of landscape photography during this residency. I really wanted to see how traditional gelatin silver printing would work for my photography. I am still trying to figure that out, but certainly had fun experimenting with this. 

During this residency I gave several talks including talks at classes, at the Museum of Contemporary Native Arts and the Santa Fe Art Institute
