Charleston TinTypist is one of the few artists in the world who has been making tintypes for portrait clients since 2013. Using vintage wooden cameras and lenses, she creates tintypes using the wet-plate collodion process, the same way they were made in the 1850 -70s! Her studio/darkroom is in her home in the greater metro area of Charleston, South Carolina, but she often travels to civil war reenactments and other events throughout the south eastern United States. When on the road she uses her portable studio/Gypsy Wagon. She has been making photographs and drawing/painting since she was 11 years old and continues to exhibit her artwork at various gallery exhibitions.
