Art has always been an expressed part of my life. My earliest 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 in school psychology, I have used art to help my clients access their creative potential to see the world in a different way. There is great healing through art and nature. In the past, I exclusively shot black and white film and only recently have been shooting digital. The images captured here are the source for my paintings. My work has been published in calendars, on cards, and been shown in Chicago, Seattle, Pennsylvania, Japan, and Salt Lake City.
Taking a year leave of absence from my work as a school psychologist, I will be traveling, photographing, painting, and writing. Follow along on New Images to see where we go and what we see on this adventure.
