Thank you for visiting my website—truly a work in progress! Please check back periodically for new developments and images. I love living in the Reno Tahoe area. I moved here in 1975 and have never wanted to leave. There is a small town feel, but with a strong art community that normally you’d find only in a big city. The area is picturesque with the Sierras to the west, and the Great Basin High Desert to the east. As far as travel, I’m only a few hours away by car to San Francisco, LA, Boise, Salt Lake, and Portland—-talk about changes in scenery!

Throughout my life I have experienced multiple changes that have led me down many paths and altered the way I perceive and think. Sometimes life has felt more than I could cope with. Other periods and moments have been filled with great joy. Throughout this journey I have found what I needed to keep going. As a result, I feel enriched, as though I have had the benefit of living many lives. Since I was a child I have always been interested in photography. I like to catch the moment if you will, whether it’s in my little studio or out in the world. Everyone has their story. You can see it in a person’s eyes and in the expressions that have left a lasting impression on their face. I like to capture the essence of an individual in my photographs. I shoot pictures for the joy of it. Please leave a comment on my blog and let me know what you think!
