Sable Island Wild Horses

It has been a dream of mine to visit the wild horses of Sable Island and I finally managed to go last fall. I am currently working on a Wild Horse exhibit to come to our gallery in June. The show will be a joint venture with my good friend photographer Shannon Fitzgerald. Stay tune for opening dates.

Big Travel Year

Starting in Iceland in March I have traveled to Morocco, North Carolina, back to Iceland, and off to Sable Island. It has been a fantastic year and I will have to spend the winter editing. I just put up some of my Morocco images. It was a special opportunity to photograph the horse master Sadek and his Lusitano stallion Chenel.

1.1.2015: New Show: Horses of Fire & Ice

Fotoworks at FIFTYTWO is putting on its first group show featuring the horses of Iceland. Known as one of the oldest purebred horses in the world, the Icelandic horse has been isolated for over 1000 years. They still live in nature where they grow up in herds and have an close social structure. These wonderful horses are shown by three photographers: Carrie Shea, Sue Ratcliff, and Martina Gates. Please join us for the opening on January 1st from noon to 5!

Editing Iceland

The fun of editing has begun;) Returning from another great Iceland trip I have many images to go through. It was truly wonderful to organize another trip with friends and colleagues. I miss you all already. Many happy memories!

Opening of Fotoworks @ FIFTYTWO

This month I am opening a photo gallery in Millerton NY. The space is fantastic and right on Main Street (#52). The first show will be a collection of photographs that I took on a recent trip to the Camargue this year called "Le Cheval de Camargue" All images will also be on my site. The all white horses are a spectacular breed to photograph. I am sharing the space with Main Street Magazine which is a perfect match. Come and stop by in mid August when the first show is hung.

Stone Paper Monoprints

I started printing again after a long summer off. My husband was in a bad car accident this spring and I have had to shift my attention to his rehabilitation over the past few months. Luckily he is doing much better and I can slowly get back to the print studio. My first edition this fall is a series of monoprints called "The Itch". It is a small edition of 5 prints, all hand printed, numbered and signed.

Copper Gravure

Making my images is a long process. It always begins with seeing the perfect shot, capturing the moment, working in the digital darkroom and it comes full circle when I get to print the image. Hand printing has become a great passion of mine and especially copper etching. It takes days to create each plate and print the editions. Master gravure artist Lothar Osterburg has been my mentor. Learning from him is a true privilege. After hours in the studio the first print is always the most exiting.
