- I'm an artist living in San Francisco, on a wooded hillside overlooking the Farallon Islands. Redtail hawks soar overhead and sometimes perch outside the studio window, and raccoons, possums and skunks are nocturnal visitors. And this is in the middle of the city!

For this year's 50/50 show I decided to work entirely with old photos and tintypes from my mother's family. I've scanned these old images and reproduced them as prints and as digital tranparencies, and layered them in different combinations, as hands-on collages (as opposed to digital collages).
It's a juried show in which 70 artists create 50 small works in 50 days, and the opening reception is this Friday evening, August 24. It's a festive and high-energy event, and I hope to see old friends and meet new ones.
