Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by. I might have just returned from snowshoeing, with my camera in tow, of course.

I invite you to check out my blog to share in my experiences throughout the seasons. And please browse through the portfolio pages for a sampling of my photographic images and the way I see the world around us. Life is short, and there is beauty and big adventures awaiting for us all!

From my blog:

As we wait for spring

Here in the north we are still waiting for spring’s arrival. Our skies have been gray, our temperatures have been 10-20 degrees below normal, and we’ve even had continuing frosts and snow. It’s been hard to keep our spirits up thinking that spring will not arrive in April but is holding off until sometime in…

Fog and snow

Try as it might, spring has not arrived. Maybe for a day or two, but then it departs and we are back in winter. The other morning we awoke to another dusting of snow. This time it was accompanied by a light fog hanging in the air, softening the branches in the distance and blurring…

Transition time

We’re slowly lurching our way from winter to spring, yet the transition is never smooth or straight. Our expectations (and our dispositions) soar when the sun comes out and starts to thaw the ice.

A little about me:

I became a photographer later in life and have enjoyed the journey of seeing and appreciating the world around me. I have lived in Kansas, Washington, and now Minnesota and Wisconsin, and have learned that there is beauty to be found everywhere. My photographic images have been exhibited in these states and have been seen in numerous publications. In 2008 I was selected as an Artist in Residence by the National Park Service, exploring the Herbert Hoover birthplace site in West Branch, Iowa.

All of my images are available as original archival quality prints, and also as distinctive and beautifully designed notecards and greeting cards. In the Twin Cities area my cards can be found at Regina’s Fine Candies and Gerten’s Garden Center. Each year I offer a collection of holiday cards and desk calendars for the upcoming year. I hope you will check back for further information and updates.
