I am extremely grateful for the unique opportunities presented to me over the years by Women in Photography International and my great friend, Jean Ferro. The experience of being a part of its history and being able to creatively assist her and this important organization, which nurtures female photographers and their work, has been highly energizing. In 2001 I was initially asked to be involved as a graphic designer, collaborating on the design, print and production--primarily the poster and CD jewel case graphics--for WIPI’s 20th Anniversary Show, Tea Time.

During the unimaginable days following 9/11, it was an extraordinary experience to have to move forward with the project and not let ourselves be deterred from our September 14 disc production deadline. Notwithstanding its cataclysmic nature, that moment in time taught me that, as artists, we can rise to the challenge and singularly focus to get the job done, never allowing the chaos of world events to stop the flow of our work and ideas. From the beginnings of Tea Time in 2001, to the Put Yourself in the Picture Photo Art Interactive Installation in 2015, I have been uniquely challenged and inspired by the various Women in Photography International projects it has been my pleasure to be associated with.
