Welcome to my new website/blog
I am so happy to introduce my new website and blog. I began exploring ideas for a custom designed site after the Creative Capital artist workshop I attended in January. I realized I wanted a site that would allow me to show more of my documentary projects as well as a greater variety of my portrait and wedding work. I also wanted to integrate my blog into the site so that visitors would not have to dig for the blog or leave my website to access it. Shortly after the Creative Capital workshop, my cousin Litza Stark, a web programmer based in New York, came to visit. She spent several hours with me sketching ideas for the site that addressed my needs.
Litza then passed on those ideas to Beth Sullivan who began fleshing out the site and creating the look and feel of the site. Litza and Beth were dynamos! Litza translated my vision perfectly into a practical, intuitive working site. Beth spent enormous amounts of time listening to me describe the way I wanted the site to FEEL. It's no small task to take an artist's descriptive words about her website and turn it into a reality, but Beth did it. She and Litza worked seamlessly (and QUICKLY!) together to bring this site to life. I also worked closely with the amazingly talented Suzanne Hendricks, who created my original logo and branding (which I LOVE) to ensure the website felt consistent with my previous website and business card.
I hope you enjoy visiting my new website. I still have loads of content to add, but already love my new digs! I hope you'll come back often to see what's new.
