I have always admired the great adventurer photographer who climbs mountains, sails the seas and reaches places that most people can only imagine.

But that is not me. I am a mom of four and a grandmother of two. I am a teacher and a fine art photographer. I have a need to create. I photograph the beauty of our lives in nature on my walks in Bolsa Chica Wetlands, the beaches of Kauai, locations throughout Southern California and our local parks in Huntington Beach and Los Angeles, as well as my travels throughout the world. So, I see the beauty in our neighborhoods. I explore gardens and see the splendor of a white rose bud beginning to unfurl its petals as it reaches for the sun. I see a tiny hummingbird returning to her nest where two baby birds are waiting impatiently for their sweet nectar.

I can continue with my words but it is about my art. Enjoy.
