Iíve been interested in photography since I picked up my first camera at the age of twelve. Growing up on a dairy farm in Ashland County gave me many opportunities to photograph landscapes, my favorite subject. While other teenagers were busy taking pictures of their friends making goofy faces I was trying to imitate my favorite landscape photographer, Ansel Adams. Several years later, I decided to make my love of photography into a profession.
I not only photograph the landscape I also write about them. I have had nine articles with supporting photographs published in Nature Photographer Magazine as well as just my photographs published in Cobblestone Magazine, Michigan-Out-of-Doors, and Truth Consciences Magazine. I have had shows (with multiple artists) at the Art Cellar Gallery, Ashlandís ODOT (one person show), the Ashland Art Center (one person show), and Wassenberg October Photography Show. Recently I have had a photograph accepted to the Vermont Photography WorkPlace. I am represented by two galleries, the Creative Chateau in Ashland, Ohio and Art 101 Gallery in Medina, Ohio. I also have work hanging in the Mansfield Art Center's gallery shop in Mansfield, Ohio.
I graduated from North Central State College with an Associates Degree in Applied Business (Graphic Design) and have been working in the printing business for over twenty years. I have been married to my husband, Chuck, for fifteen years. We have a daughter Catie, together and I have four step-children, eight-wait-nine grandchildren several cats and a dog. I live in the Polk area just three miles from the dairy farm I grew up on.
