Constellation Books: Blood and Sand

Tribal Shadow


I am delighted to announce that my photo series, "Blood and Sand" will be opening this Friday, August 7, at Constellation Books in Maryland. It's my first solo exhibition and I'm very excited!

The show starts at 6pm, and there will be a wine tasting, live music, and art! I am so pleased that my first solo show is going to be in a bookstore. I think it's an especially good setting for "Blood and Sand" series, which is a story in itself, with defined characters, conflict and a wild fantasy setting.


To the South


The Blood and Sand shoot was taken four days before my wedding, and I was lucky enough to have some of my closest friends in the world nearby. The photos mean even more to me that the people in them were there. There is nothing so joyful as creating something with friends.

I'm really looking forward to the show on Friday. If you are in the Baltimore area, stop by on Friday and say hello!

I adore this set. I love it, love it, and I want to do a hundred more like it. I just need to find an excellent setting nearby and some costumes and then I'll be off!

I'm so excited for Friday! I'll take lots of pictures - there shall be a full report!

At the beginning of the year I set all sorts of goals for myself - I keep these goals on a long list next to my desk. Sometimes I add to it, but more and more, I seem to be crossing things off. One of the goals was to exhibit my photography. I'm so excited that this is coming to pass!

I'll be taking lots of photos.

That's so sweet! I have been working pretty much non-stop. It's kind of exciting to have my own little opening and exhibition. I'm thrilled!

You know, Steven and I live near Baltimore. If you have time for dinner or something at some point, I think it would be cool together! Would you like to have dinner or something?

Probably not on Friday (I'll be busy setting everything up) but Jared and I pop down there now and then and I'd love to see you.
