I've been working overtime to get my solo show together. Oversized prints mounted onto wood panels and a fragment piece made of 24 individual images all resined. My house looks like a Breaking Bad Meth lab with plastic hanging from the ceiling around the dining table. This will be the most extravagant show yet and every piece is handmade from the prints to the mounting to the finishes and the frames.
How wonderful to not only have my favorite breed featured but to get the cover as well as an inside spread. The Icelandic horse has a special place in my heart.
Horse Illustrated ran a feature on the magnificent Knabstrupper horses with my photographs taken on a trip to Germany in 2017. This breed is somewhat rare but spectacular to see, so it was especially great to get an 8-page spread.

The September 2016 issue of Horse Illustrated featured an 8 page spread on my images of the Icelandic horse. Horse Illustrated has been my inspiration for getting into Icelandics many years ago, so it was extra special to me.
A new book on horse photography "Pferde Fotografie" by the great horse photographer Wiebke Haas was published in Germany this spring. I am proud to have been part of this great book. There is a full chapter on my photography.
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.
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.
The first group show at Fotoworks is a collected work by photographers Carrie Shea, Sue Ratcliffe, and myself. We traveled together and captured one of the oldest pure breeds in the world: The Icelandic horse. The exhibition opened January 1st and will run through May 18th, 2015. Please come visit us. All prints are limited edition.
First Time an exhibition is displayed by Gigja EinarsdÓttir in North America. Her images are absolutely stunning. Stay tuned for details!
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!
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!
We made it! All hung and it looks beautiful. 14 images, all signed & limited edition of 5 each. Stop by and see it. The show will be on for another 6 weeks.
We will have our grand opening with all images ready for viewing at Fotoworks, 52 Main Street, Millerton NY. Please come and join us!
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.
This Thursday, July 24th one of my images was chosen to be displayed on two of the largest video billboards in Times Square between 8-9pm!
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.
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.
