I have always been a photographer. Although photography has not been my primary career, it has always been a driving passion that has played a significant role in my experiences and adventures.
My images are about my passions: the people, places and moments that touch my soul. My camera is an integral part of me and I shoot all the time. I especially enjoy portraiture, street photography, landscape, and botanicals but basically shoot whatever catches my eye, (which is everything). Maybe knowing that I had a 35 year career as a social worker will explain more of my art and who I am. I have been told that I am a voice for those that cannot speak for themselves and I feel that I am a social worker with a camera. My camera is my voice.
The iPhone has freed me, in so many ways: from carrying heavy equipment, from fear of experimentation and taking risks, from fear of breaking rules and much more. It has expanded my vision and opened up new worlds. The portability alone is magic: to have this little camera and the many apps where I can edit my photos in the palm of my hand, always available! There is a constant thrill of learning new skills.
At this time, all of my imagery is created using the iPhone and iPad.
