Research Information:

I am an artist and a photographer. I have been teaching art for 25 years. I am current in the debates between traditional and digital photography as well as the role of photography in contemporary art practice. I have designed and supervised the operation of two digital photography labs, one for teaching groups and at the graduate level, for advanced techniques and large-format printing. I am interested in the predominance of women in art schools, and as photography students. I am concerned that this dominance at the undergraduate educational level is superseded by a lack of presence and visibility in the art market, the museums and the commercial photography sectors.  I also have experience in curriculum development as well as accreditation reviews with governmental and institutional regulation organizations. I am interested in the education of artists, and in art as an important education for all of society. I have been a member of peer reviewed juries, with many art councils and organizations at the federal, provincial and municipal levels.
