During trips collecting rare pieces to be used in her jewelry design business of contemporary jewelry with “Hints of History”, she developed a discerning eye by taking pictures of exotic people and places. Her powerful photographs convey a deep understanding of the lifestyles and mores of these cultures and seem to transport her subjects across time and oceans into our consciousness. As fewer and fewer people were still wearing their traditional dress and were beginning to all dress the same... t-shirts, jeans, etc… she realized that the walls that she walked past every day, were even more interesting and evocative of the local history. Their textures, colors and time evolved layers created amazing abstract images. To date, she has captured thousands of fabulous abstract wall images from around the world for her canvas wall art collection, WALLS ON WALLS.
