I grew up as a daughter of an artist, traveling to art shows and museums which began my passion for creating.
I have been addicted to taking pictures since I took my first photography class in high school using my favorite camera, the Pentex K1000. I spent most of my childhood exploring among the woods and creeks of Maryland. I feel at home outdoors which explains why I am drawn to capturing nature in my photographs. I have traveled in Canada, Mexico, Ireland, France and all over the United States. I am in awe of this beautiful world God has entrusted to us and want to share that beauty in my work.
I received a college degree in photography when the only option was film and a darkroom. After college I worked as a photographer and darkroom technician in Frederick, MD. I freelanced for many years as I raised my boys who are now adults. I furthered my art education when I returned to school in 2000 to obtain a degree in Graphic Design. I currently work in the art department for a large printing company designing graphics and layouts for vending companies worldwide.
I exhibit my work at local art shows, restaurants and galleries. I have enjoyed a long career in the visual arts which includes Photographer, Darkroom Technician, Art Department Lead, Prepress Artist, Art Department Assistant Supervisor, Graphics Master Data Specialist and Graphic Artist.
