Photography initially was a means to study light, form and color to be interpreted in my quilting art. My collection of images have taken on their own portfolio and body of artistic expression. I have been awarded honors for both art quilting and photography.
I began taking pictures in 2005 when I got a free 3 megapixel digital camera bundeled with a computer. Not long there after I was awarded Photographer of the Year from Emerald Photographic Society, using a point and shoot camera! The title and fellowship with other photographers inspired me to go SLR and get serious about photography and editing techniques. I have had images published with National Geographic, National Wildlife refuge library and local publications.
The rest of the time I am a full time Special Education Teacher.
