Welcome to my gallery! The following images are a sampling of photographs that represents my current shooting style.

I do not have preferred subject matter. If I can photograph any thing or anyone in an original and creative way, then that is my favorite subject at that moment.

I have recently included Photoshop in my "camera bag". Contrary to my initial purist attitude, I now believe the end result is most important. Beginning with high quality images, I like to use Photoshop for enhancement, not "masking" inferior images (sorry for the pun)!

Two photographs I am particularly fond of are "Sonata" (a reflection of my passion and my daughter's love of music; and my very first photo contest win!), and "Maestro".

I hope you enjoy my images. All comments are well received and immensely appreciated. Thank you for visiting my gallery and please check frequently... I plan on refreshing often!

Bio

I am currently 45 years old, wife to a wonderfully supportive husband and a stay-at-home mom with backgrounds in metallurgy and pastry design. I have four daughters and two grandchildren who make the journey of parenting and grandmotherhood exciting and special.

Interest in photography eluded me until May 2001 when I purchased a digital camera (Canon G1) to replace an obsolete SLR. The instant gratification and ability to take unlimited photos (deleting undesirables along the way) without processing costs is very exciting to me.

Since I have discovered photo competitions, such as Betterphoto, which showcase the inspiring works of fine photographers, I am actively seeking excellence in this endeavor. I am always amazed at the lengths I go to for "the shot".

The relationship between beholder and photographer is an intimate and special one. Without beholders, photography would not exist. Thank you for being part of that special relationship with me.
