At age nine, I borrowed my neighbor’s Brownie camera for a class trip and shot my first roll of film. Black and white in those days; and I was hooked! During adolescence, I mostly listened to John Denver as his lyrics always transformed the way I looked at life. To this day, his lyrics come to mind everywhere I go, causing me to look at everything with a keen eye.

I appreciate all unique facets available to us all each day and have a desire to share the magnificence I see that others may not take time to notice. It is my hope that my photos will spark a fond memory or bring a smile to your day.


My home is in northwestern Illinois where I enjoy country living with my husband and our German shepherd, Izzy.  Our blended family of four boys are grown and out of the nest.  They are on their own quest to achieve a joy-filled life.  We enjoy their company as often as time and schedules allow, and love that our family keeps on growing! 

I am a self-represented artist specializing in fine art photography.  You may find my work locally at Blarney Stone Popcorn and Gifts, Inc., located in Shannon, IL.  I welcome any comments or questions.

From both near and far, I offer you images captured for your delight.  Thank you for your time…I hope you enjoy the journey…come back to visit me often!
