About The Artist
My home is in the Methow Valley of northern Washington. I share my life with my husband Ken and two black dogs, Luna and Sky. We enjoy long summer hikes in the North Cascades and rambling in the hills during the spring and fall. Winter fun often involves various kinds of skis. I like good fresh food, trips to the beach, paddling my kayak, dog agility, road trips with Ken and our dogs and our pop-up camper, good coffee, red wine, campfires, the company of good friends and any time spent with my dogs. And I like being outside under the stars.
I make photos that tell stories. I document scenes in front of me. The light of the day, or the night, inspires me. My hair isn’t always combed. Sometimes my jeans are torn. My dogs probably have muddy feet. And my car needs to be washed.
My photography reflects my love for the natural world where I get my inspiration.
I photograph the night sky, dogs, the natural world around me, weddings, and other events.
My father was a journalist and he taught me about photography from an early age. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a camera to use. Because of that, I have a journalistic eye. I like my images to tell a story.
What is your story? How can I capture it in images for you? On a mountain top? Next to a river? With your closest friend?
I am a member of The Winthrop Gallery.
