See What I See

“See What I See” Photography, Various Sizes


I am inspired by color, shape and design. The process of making photographs continues to intrigue and delight me years after picking up my first film camera.


Great Expectations

There are many ways to measure success – exhibits, publications and awards. While I am grateful to receive acknowledgment for my work in this way, that is not the reason I pick up my camera every day.


3 Second Flash

In our fast-paced world, stepping behind the lens allows me to slow down, leave behind the noise, and see the world from a different point of view.

Times like these are magical and treasured.


Slip Slidin'

Because I value these times, I was hesitant to take on yet one more social media platform. But thought I’d try Instagram provided my daily photo could be shot, processed and uploaded while drinking my morning coffee.


The Way Out

I am blessed to have a backyard with unrestricted marsh views. In November 2013, feeling like Monet in a field of haystacks, I opened an account and started my backyard series, Same View ~ Different Day.



“Sailing” Photography, Various Sizes


This personal project has been a blessing in many ways. I’ve learned to see my backyard landscape in all it’s diversity- two hundred and thirty images to date! I’ve learned tons about mobile apps, art-filters and wifi transfers.

More importantly, I am mindful daily of the tides, the track of the sun on the horizon, the color of dawn, the art of clouds, and the rhythm of nature as she unfolds her eternal beauty.

As artists, we all have goals for the work we create and share. I regard each image a success when it brings even the smallest measure of wonder and joy to those who see it.
