Clients: "Pictures for the soul" and "Leave it to you to turn a 123 year old Victorian home with peeling paint, into something that looks like it came from the pages of Dickens's Christmas Carol!"
Growing up in Ketchikan, Alaska, I was inspired by the extraordinary sights of the Pacific Northwest from an early age. Essentially self-taught, I became interested in photography while living in Washington and developing my first photograph in a high school dark room. Years of working full time and raising children didn't provide free time to pursue my creative passions. In 2010, my architect husband and grand daughter and I moved from California and bought a historic house and farm in Bunn, North Carolina. I became inspired by the beauty and history that surrounds me in our new home. I literally wore out my old camera, taking pictures of the wildlife and historic buildings near our home. I love exploring the beautiful state of North Carolina, finding the extraordinary in the ordinary and creating one of-a-kind images. See Press Releases for more information and links to sites.
