I taught nursing and then focused on fine art with representation in several galleries. An unexpected turn in career came about with some volunteer work at a legal aid clinic when I then went to law school. My legal practice focuses on environmental issues - water, air, lands, redevelopment of abandoned factory sites. I still craved a connection with art and began honing my skills in photography. With an introduction to documentary and street photography, I was hooked and traded my brushes and paints for film and a camera.
I have learned to be patient and open calling attention to things others often overlook. I am drawn to contrast, the interplay of shadow and light and how it transforms textures, forms and patterns. Editing out the realism of color often highlights details which emphasize the mystery and classic timelessness of black and white photographs.
