Art has always been an expressed part of my life.  My childhood memories are of painting classes and drawing excursions out in the field. Art school and working in the dark room combined with a need to be out in nature has provided a rich source of creative satisfaction.  

 

Also trained as a school psychologist, I have used art to help my clients access their creative potential, to help me understand their view of the world, and  to help them be able to see the world in a different way. There is great healing through art and nature.  Retired from practicing as a psychologist, I am able to devote my time to photographing, traveling, painting, and writing.  

 

My works, both photography and paintings, have been published in calendars, magazines, on cards, won awards, and have been shown in galleries in Chicago, Seattle, Pennsylvania, Japan, and Salt Lake City. I teach photo workshops primarily in the west, which is my home for much of the year.
