Maine is my native home and Maine College of Art is where I earned a BFA in photography. Post college life took me on many travels. My experiences included living in Madison, Wisconsin where I owned and managed photography and mixed media art galleries, taught Cibachrome color printing, operated a photography themed country inn & cafe and worked on my own personal projects as time allowed switching from analog to digital. My exhibition history includes dozens of juried exhibitions throughout Wisconsin and Illinois.
In 2017 I returned to my home state where I am concentrating on my work. These past couple years I have been participating in several Maine Media Workshop courses and fine tuning my digital printing skills.
In 2010 I went completely blind having been afflicted with severe glaucoma in both eyes simultaneously. This dramatic event changed my life. My eyesight miraculously returned and now I’m dedicated to my work despite the fact my pupils do not adjust to light changes making seeing oftentimes a challenge. I’m grateful that todays technology allows me to work with confidence.
