My passion for photography arrived fairly late in life while returning to college after my children had grown. A course in photography with a darkroom lab changed my life forever. I’ve been a photographer for over 30 years, largely self taught.  I worked as Graphic Designer, Public Relations Director and Photographer for 20 years at Maple Knoll Village, a large, nonprofit retirement community in Cincinnati, Ohio.

My husband Jerry and I retired to Santa Fe, New Mexico, in 2006. Though now a widow, I continue my passion photographing in this magical land, as well as experimenting with mixed media and antique tintypes.   I enjoy volunteering as camp photographer for Camp Corazones, a summer camp for children infected/affected by HIV. I am also a stock photographer for the SantaFean, a glossy,  high quality magazine that publicizes the arts and happenings in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
