I have enjoyed photography since I was a child and was given a camera from my grandparents. It seemed
magical to see what the camera saw and how different it was from my everyday views of the world around me. As I
grew up I graduated to larger cameras and lenses and the magic continued. Traveling and seeing new places
and new things helps to heighten my awareness of what is around me. Capturing the common in uncommon
ways is part of my artistic vision. Sometimes the details are recognizable and sometimes they are abstractions
but I like both ways of approaching photography.

I love color and light and the play of shadows. My art explores those qualities both in the art of photography and in
my fiber art. I strive to focus on seeing the world in new ways using visual and physical texture to enhance the art
