For the past 20 years I have been photographing people and interiors for websites, magazines and for personal portfolios. 

Interior design and decorating has always been a passion of mine. I have been invited to photograph some of the most beautiful residences in the Bay Area, Toronto, The Netherlands and other parts of Western Europe. I am also a monthly contributor to Houzz, an online resource and guide to residential remodeling projects and garden design.

I have always been involved in art and DIY design. In addition to photography I produce mixed media collages, combining photography with paint and paper. Encaustic wax (heated beeswax) is another medium I work with, and I teach monthly workshops which introduce participants to encaustic painting techniques. My art website is: mhartford.com

Using images I take with my cell phone I have established a giftware line, items include bamboo panels, magnets, cards and prints. The website for my product line is: stillretro.com
