Welcome!

Thanks for stopping by. I might have just returned from a relaxing night of fishing and a little bit of photography too.

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:

The start of fall

Not only has fall officially started per the calendar, but we are starting to see the change of seasons all around us. I woke up to a cool but bright morning at the lake, with steam rising up off the surface. A couple of extra layers of clothing were needed as I launched my kayak…

Stepping stones

We’ve recently returned from a three-week road trip to visit family and explore new places. We experienced sun and heat, smoke-filled days and nights, a full moon, and a sky filled with countless stars.

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.
