Greetings!!!

 
 
 
I have been a photographer for most of my life. Whether I knew it or not is another story. I picked up my first camera at the age of eight – my Mom’s Rolleiflex - and became - much to the chagrin of my strict parents - the family voyeur. Often my dad would tell me that what I was doing was not proper behavior for a lady. I'd look around to see who he was talking to.  I guess you could say I was a bit of a rebel.  Of course in those days, they called it being a "Tom boy". Since then, however, I’ve reined myself in and become a bit of an artist and it’s truly been like magic. I have migrated seamlessly from film to digital over the last 20-ish years and continue my life-long fascination with and love of photography. 

It wasn’t until I finished college that I realized I needed to continue to learn and become an expert in my field, so I continued on until I finally achieved a Masters level. Being inspired by a 16th century inventor has been nothing short of a surprise for me. “Light is the chaser away of shadows”, or so says Leonardo da Vinci. Consequently, my love of line, light, shadow and color have infiltrated my work and have become the impetus for everything I create. Being a photographic artist has become something that fulfills my creative need and my soul, all at the same time.  

More often than not, my images take me in a direction I didn’t know I was going and inspire me to continue to create. I believe that if you follow your passion you'll never go wrong. It’s always a constant and delightful surprise…one that takes me completely outside of the strict military lifestyle I grew up with.

On top of all that, I've now brought travel writing and photography into the mix.  I travel at least once a month and bring home stories and images of my adventures.  I've been published in multiple magazines, both online and in print. Who knew this life long love of photography could turn into yet another profession this late in my life.  I'm loving it for sure.  Check out my travel website at indiespirit.live.  See you there!


INSPIRATIONS

“Light is the chaser away of shadows”. While da Vinci is my main inspiration, others like O'Keeffe, Blossfeldt, and Cunningham are definitely a few I'd love to have a conversation with if I could travel back in time.
