I am a fine artist who works in a range of photographic media. My work has been nationally exhibited, and is held in collections including Kaiser Permanente, Reynolds & Reynolds, the Crowne Collection, Chicago; the Smithsonian Museum and the Archdiocese of Prague.
My conceptual imagery studies the natural world and how photographic language interprets and affects our perceptions of it. I am author of The Elements of Photography: Understanding and Creating Sophisticated Images, which centers on controlling photography’s technical attributes to create meaningful images.
I live on a 9,500-foot mountainside abutting national forest land in Colorado's Front Range, with my husband Dave, three household pets, and neighbors: elk, deer, fox, coyotes, bears and mountain lions. In my off-time I track wildlife, build stone walls and participates in pine bark beetle mitigation efforts.
