Photography has changed my life.
Updated Sept 28, 2016
… and the journey continues to amaze me! It’s hard to believe it has been four years since I bought my first “big girl” camera, one that I just recently sold to a budding enthusiastic amateur nature photographer. I knew he would be hooked just as I was! I have bought several other cameras since that D3100 and now shoot mostly with a Nikon D610 and a Nikon D7100. My work has been shown in a growing list of galleries in North Carolina and Virginia and I will be venturing out more in 2017 on the art show circuit. Click here for my event page.

I have always enjoyed taking pictures but now I can honestly say that I am beyond passionate about photography. In the fall of 2012, after a particularly difficult transition in my life, I made the decision to purchase my first big girl camera, a Nikon D3100, and to learn about “real photography”. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made and by far the best therapy I have ever experienced. I wake up each and every morning now eager to discover the little surprises that I may be able to capture as I go about my day. There is always something new to shoot and something more to learn about my camera, about photography, and ultimately about myself.
I rarely go anywhere without my camera now. It is the best companion I could ever ask for. It keeps me entertained and engaged, it offers me new challenges and adventures and it helps open my eyes to all the beauty that surrounds me. It gives me great joy to be able to capture and share that beauty with others.
I have often said that things happen for a reason. I firmly believe that everything that happened prior to the purchase of my camera had to happen to get me to this place. Even all the terrible painful experiences brought me to these moments filled with joy and inspiration. Photography has truly changed my life in ways I never could have imagined just a year ago.
While I shoot a wide variety of subjects, I have found that I am drawn to certain types of images. Those are the ones I share here on this site. I am not quite sure why I am so captivated by these types of images, whether it says something about my soul, whether it has to do with having spent part of my childhood in Southeast Asia, or what it is that draws me to such places. I see these images as an interesting collaboration of Mother Nature, Father Time and mankind, who all joined together to produce something lovely. To me anyway.
I am currently working on making my photography available for purchase. Stay tuned for more info!
