My current passion is an alternative photographic process called Polaroid transfers. Each transfer is hand-made by the photographer using specific materials and equipment to achieve a desired effect. A transparency is projected on to professional Polaroid print film and as development begins, the print and chemicals are prematurely separated. The image is transferred on to dampened watercolor paper for a unique image which has a dated, artistic photo-painting appearance. Exposure, pressure, time, paper and other variables make each print an original mono-print.

I am fascinated by the unpredictability of Polaroid transfers and I love the freedom of experimentation and “lucky mistakes.” I like the uniqueness of each piece and the painterly quality of the finished transfer. The flexibility and mobility of this photographic medium lends itself to spontaneous exploration. The added possibility of reworking my images using watercolors or pastel pencils , adds another dimension to this alternative printing process.
