She discovered her love for photography in high school in the late 1980's, but it was truly nurtured in her years at Palomar College. There she had dedicated mentors who helped refine her eye for nature photography, encouraged to document people in their environment, and supported her efforts in the field as a novice.
All of the images are simple and quiet, and yet they hold a special moment and story. Her first love has always been B&W scenic photography. She has used a Hassleblad for many years, and recently started shooting Nikon SLR digital as well. She has also explored and played with seeing imagery in color, which are often very subdued and monochromatic. Her true love is photographing areas like Lone Pine, Big Pines, Yosemite, Death Valley . . .
She has had the great opportunity to take many different workshops and to travel to the Eastern Sierras, Cerro Gordo, Carmel, Yosemite, Yellowstone, Big Bear, Death Valley, Colorado, Canada, Israel and all over the United States.
Her work has been shown over the years at Good Books Gallery, Calumet Photographic, Palomar College, The Escondido Arts Group, The Elizabeth Hospice, and the Del Mar Fair. She also has been published in Bravera and FOCUS at Palomar College, and has two of her own books, Colorado Fall Colors, and Tracing Journeys Through Shadows.
For the last 5 years she has expanded her vision, and has become an accomplished wedding and portrait photographer. Her new area of focus also includes teaching photography at Palomar College.
