Artist's Statement

All my life I have had a love for classical art and photography and over the years pursued training in both fields. My background includes watercolor and oil painting, charcoal and pen and ink drawing, and darkroom black and white photography. When the digital age dawned in the 21st century it immediately captured my interest, and as the technology matured I turned to photography as my preferred means of expression.

I truly love the artistic freedom I experience as a photographer. My goal is to utilize the camera as an artistic medium, capturing images that serve as a foundation upon which I continue to build in the digital darkroom (otherwise known as my desktop computer), refining and embellishing to express my own creative vision. It is not my intent to present a literal interpretation of the world. Instead, using composition, color and gesture, I hope to evoke the artistic essence of the subject matter that touched my imagination. The images I select for my portfolio are those that have a painterly quality without straying too far from the photographic reality of the original capture. These become lasting souvenirs of brief moments frozen in time, beauty captured and shared to feed the soul.

My eclectic portfolio is influenced by my life, past and present. I live on a rural property near Tucson, Arizona, where I raise horses destined for competitive show jumping. In contrast to that desert environment, my husband and I take frequent extended trips to the South Pacific aboard a cruising yacht. As a result my image collection is heavily weighted towards exotic locales and seascapes. I am also a certified advanced open water scuba diver so my camera accompanies me both above and below the water. When home from the sea I concentrate on nature, wildlife and equestrian subjects. For me, photography has opened the door to adventure and continues to lead me in new and fascinating directions.
