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:

An unsettling summer sunrise

The other morning dawned cool and calm. There was steam coming off the lake surface, and the sun was a red ball rising into a hazy yellow and murky sky. It was quiet except for the sounds of geese and ducks calling off in the distance. On this day there was never much of a…

Update to my website

Happy summer solstice and summer season! For all those days in the depths of winter when we grumbled about the cold and snow we now have the long days of sun and the heat of summer.

Peonies for remembrance

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.
