As I entered Grand Teton National Park, the sky began to clear. Clouds hung around the jagged peaks. A row of evergreens sat in the 5 foot base of snow.

I'm an amateur photographer, searching for the marvelous in the mundane. As an introvert, photography is my language of choice. Early on, my photography focused on postcard images of my travels or snapshots of family gatherings. Now, my desire is to create evocative, compelling images that depict the world as I experience it – with joy, awe, surprise and humility. I’m particularly drawn to landscape and nature photography. To capture the essence of a place, I cannot merely see a landscape, I must feel it. So, I visit locales repeatedly at various times of day and during different seasons as the changing light reflects new aspects of each scene. I still like "postcard snaps" but, more often, I patiently wait for the moment to be illuminated. I love to wander, searching for sights that speak to me. From vast landscapes to intimate details, I embrace the wonder of this world.
My images have been exhibited in Chania (Crete), Greece, Athens, Greece; Glasgow, Scotland; Sciacca (Sicily), Italy; Halifax, Nova Scotia; Oakville, Ontario; Santa Monica, California; Minneapolis, Minnesota, Atlanta, Georgia and Portland, Oregon. My images have been published in The Malibu Times Magazine and the Toronto Star.
