Taking photographs helps me to define what I am seeing, and how I am affected by what I see…emotionally, spiritually and intellectually. I hope my photographic images will also communicate something to the viewer.

My early background is in film editing, and currently I do art quilting. Sometimes a series of photos becomes a clearer way for me to express something since I’m used to things moving or being patched together. The world of nature, abstract designs, and human & animal expressions are of interest to me. My current portfolio is partly an exploration of beauty in aging – something which flowers, in various phases of their short lives, serve as a metaphor.
