"Guided by light and line, and recognizing that a photograph is a reflection of a unique, fleeting reality, I strive to bring a quiet, contemplative energy to the frame.

By focusing on composition and tone, while limiting the use of processing techniques, I try to establish and nurture an intimate affinity with the subject; one that communicates and celebrates the beauty, poignancy and oft-times ironic nature of our chaotic world.

Having devoted most of my professional life to the travel industry, the career â€‹opportunely fed an appetite for travel to Europe, North America, Asia, Mexico, Central and South America. Photographic art came to me in earnest eleven years ago, after decades of making photos to document memories and framing everything I saw with my eyes.

Born in Edmonton, Alberta, I moved to Vancouver, British Columbia in my early 20's where soon after, I raised two extraordinary sons.  

I currently live with my poet husband in Arroyo Seco, New Mexico."
