Paige began taking pictures when she was a kid, printing them with her Dad in their makeshift darkroom using the same enlarger that he had printed on with his dad when he was a kid. Since then she has studied and experimented with various aspects of photography, most recently balancing the digital world of Photoshop and Lightroom with making work that she can touch with her hands, exploring the various historical processes of photo printing. Her photographs have been shown in venues in Washington, DC, where she lives, as well as across the country. Her fine art work can be seen at www.bettermousetrapstudio.com.
Working as an illustrator in children’s publishing for over 40 years, along with her photographic work, has created for her a synergy of visual practice and learning. She has illustrated over 30 books for children and has worked for many trade, mass market and textbook publishers. She illustrates the Beatrice Black Bear story on the back page of Click magazine for 9 issues a year. Her illustration work can be seen at www.paigebillinfrye.com
She also uses her skills on a volunteer basis heading up a project to photograph the mollusk collection at the Smithsonian’s National Museum of Natural History. The digitized images are made available to researchers around the world.
Paige believes that everyone is an artist in one way or another and is happy to provide the guidance needed for folks to explore their own creative path.
