I am still in love with scannography and silhouette art and am currently taking an advanced independent study in scannography at Johnson State College.

Scannography–uses a hi-res scanner to produce art. The result has the effect of using a full frame camera and film.

I am working on two projects for my independent study: “From Immigration to Integration” which uses my family genealogy.  The second project continues scanning the beauty in nature.

Silhouette Art:.  Cut-outs, transparencies and small objects are placed on an overhead projector, projected onto a wall, paper or material and then photographed.  The results can be haunting and beautiful.
