I have been photographing my world since a family friend gave me a Kodak box camera and I learned to develop prints as a young child. In high school I purchased her first 35 mm SLR camera, learn to develop film, and experimented with a variety photographic of techniques. Later, in college I continued to experiment with art and photography, but concentrated on the history of art. Following college, I worked in the arts including as a gallery director for a contemporary craft gallery. In late 2002 my future husband and I moved west and for the first time since college was able to focus on making my own art again.
Series include "Study of Motherhood" and "Exploratons of the New Southwest"
"The history and beauty of the Mohave Desert inspired me to produce my latest series of photographs: "Explorations of the New Southwest". Ghost towns, National Parks, machinery and cars left abandoned, and sections of old Route 66 are subjects that make up the images in the series. They are images that recall the past grandeur of the objects and reveal how beautiful objects become as nature reclaims; in general, images that reflect the beauty of the desert in our present day."
