"TWO ON THE SKID"
One fine summer evening in Portland, an old friend of mine, a brilliant graphic designer named Michael Casey, gave me a roll of "spy" film. We were in his studio just down the hall from mine. "See what you can do with it," he mused... "it's really kind of unusual, or so I'm told."
Taking the challenge I took my trusty Nikon out of my studio and on to the street. There I was immediately confronted with the most unusual scene, a visual pun which included a billboard and trucks. The billboard headline proclaimed, "Look... Double Coupons." Beneath the billboard were two identical trucks parked side by side. So, I took the photograph of the sign and the trucks all doubled up amusing myself with this clever chance arrangement of pairs. Seldom had Madison Avenue found such a concurrency linked to an actuality!
Proceeding down the street I immediately ran into identical male twins with their identical twin vans. Holy smoke, I thought... this must be fate. I asked permission to photograph the twins in front of their vans and went on my merry way looking for more. By now I knew this was my destiny! All I could see were doubles, no matter where I turned. Snake Eyes!
This image is from the tail end of the series taken the following morning near Burnside Street in Chinatown. I began to feel a little superstitious like I was a character in a Fellini movie (or exhausted from the delirium) so at this point I called it quits. No more Juliet of the Spirits, at least not until the film was processed and prints were made. The resulting collection of Doubles Prints turned out to be a quite a hit... here's one brought out of the box from the past... please enjoy.

I grew up in the mountains of North Georgia and, as a child, was forever drawing, writing and designing. I spent countless hours exploring the acres of forest that were my backyard, basking in the great outdoors. Today this creativity and love of nature translates into my jewelry design.
‘Lila’ is Sanskrit for experiencing the universe as arising from love, play and creative adventures. For me, creativity and jewelry making is this dance of love.
