Artist Statement

For me, photography started in 2004 when I made a conscious choice to leave corporate America and my 15-year career in telecommunications. I joined my husband as a partner in our own cottage industry, operating an ISP out of our row house on Capitol Hill. I added regular yoga to my passion for running and began volunteering in many community initiatives. I also took a photography class to further “expand my horizons.” Since then I see the world somewhat differently—figuratively by having added new dimensions to my lifestyle and literally through the lens of my dad’s old Pentax. My intrigue at what I see in the world continues to develop.

Having lived in urban environments, Chicago and Washington, most all my life, I now find myself drawn to nature. I feel that I have grown as a photographer in this short time – becoming more comfortable with all types of landscapes, including industrial landscapes.
Taking the pictures, printing them on RC or fiber paper, framing the photos and participating in Capitol Hill Art League and other shows allows my previously under-tapped creative side to emerge while giving me a sense of accomplishment.
