Originally from Las Vegas, Nevada, where I earned a bachelor's degree in art while homeschooling four children. I currently reside in Santa Fe, NM where I enjoy the arts community and the natural beauty of the Southwest.
My passion for wildlife has taken me to many remote locations reaching all seven continents. As an accomplished photographer, I have photographed wildlife intimately. For me, nothing is more exhilarating than getting up-close and-personal with wild critters and capturing their personalities in the moment.
As an extension of my photographic success, I am now creating a repertoire of artwork that celebrates nature. I utilize multiple mediums to express my passion: oil paints, crystal glass, clay, and bronze. My goal is to create a series of stunning artwork that prompts the viewer to appreciate and preserve our wild places--to remember the wild even when surrounded by city.
If you can't find me in the art studio, you'll definitely find me outdoors either photographing, skiing, hiking, or sailing.
