Thank you for visiting my site. Please leave a message, I would love to know what photos you like and also what you didn't like. I will be uploading pictures as they happen, so check back often. If I could learn how to do it, I would love to try to write a little about my photography journey. I am not a writer, but perhaps I could share information about the pictures. The art of taking pictures has been an exciting journey.

I have always loved photography, but found it to be a very expensive hobby. When one processes 12 rolls of film and only keeps 3 or 4 pictures it gets to be very expensive. A digital camera removed this problem. Family and friends already knew of my love for photography but a commitment to make a photograph a day and share them on Facebook enabled a wider audience to see my pictures.

My goal is to share a story or see an item differently and share that in my photographs. This has been a challenge, but the process has been fun. My pictures have been on display at the Preble County Fine Arts Center; juried art shows at Minnetrista (Muncie), at the Richmond Art Museum, at the Whitewater Valley Annual Art Competition held at Indiana University East and at the Healing Art show at McCullough-Hyde Memorial Hospital in Oxford, Ohio.

In July and August of 2012, I was honored to have my first one-woman show of photography art at The Barry MacDowell Gallery, Reid Hospital and Health Care Services, Richmond, IN. The show received rave reviews from hospital staff and visitors.

I am so pleased when people enjoy my pictures. Pablo Picasso once said "Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life." That’s how I feel when I pick up my camera—clean and free and that’s what I would like for people to feel when they see my pictures.

Please email if you are interested in purchasing a print.
