I have explored the natural and created landscape for nearly thirty years.

I began my time behind the camera studying an urban landscape. When my life became rural over twenty years ago, my photography’s focus shifted. One consistency is my desire to isolate shapes, form, patterns, light, and texture in my work.

 As I became a mom and my moments became more precious, my photographs have become less deliberate. I am glad that I am someone who recognizes beauty and oddities almost instantaneously. I believe these candid observations are showing more and more in my photography.

Still I long to become a more methodical and purposeful photographer once again.

My home for the past sixteen years and favorite photo muse.

 

I look for defined form and pattern when photographing my pristine rural home.

Photos from my five years living in the Southwest and later travels.

 

I love the clarity and drama of light, shadow, and color in the Southwest.

Quirky misfit photos. Or just for fun.

 

These are the works that defy my categorization.
