Discovering the wonders of nature and exploring this planet have been my lifetime passion. The vibrant colors, shapes, patterns and movement surrounding us are an ever-changing pallet of beautiful possibilities. I am focused on capturing that poetry and incorporating it in my images and collages.
Early on, I studied the basics of photography and darkroom techniques. A camera has accompanied me everywhere throughout my life: shooting concerts, working towards my Bachelor of Social Work degree, traveling through this country and beyond, in my work with people with AIDS/HIV, and shooting weddings and portraits. I’ve taken classes from many of my favorite photographers. Capturing the beauty around me has been both a challenge and great love.
My work has appeared on CD covers, in books, newspapers, magazines, and people’s homes. It’s been in several juried exhibits and displayed in bookstores and my studio.
