Flower and food photography are my specialties, however, my photography interests also include Nature and Infrared photography. I like to fill my photographs will beauty and color.
I was drawn into photography as a child by summer vacations and trips to National Parks and a camera that I was given as a gift. As an adult, my love of flowers and photography motivated me to take my first Fine Art Flower Photography class. This class was followed by more classes with Bryan F. Peterson and Tony Sweet; I learned about exposure, movement and color in a way that gave wings to my creativity. Then my interest in food and baking led me to start photographing desserts. I decided that I wanted to learn more in depth about food photography and pursued that by taking some classes with professional food photographers.
My photographs have been published in Life Images magazine (Stampington & Company). In addition, I had my photographs displayed at a local library and have won awards in juried competition.
I print onto a variety of media from paper to fabric to metal as well as hand-paint select photographs.
I live in the Midwest with my family and pets.
I have a Bachelor of Arts degree in psychology and a Master of Arts degree in business, both from Webster University.
