I started to really get into this “hobby” in October 2008 and now it has become a real passion!!! It has slowed me down and opened my eyes to enjoying the ride rather than being in a hurry to get to my destination. I enjoy the peacefulness of seeking out beauty and capturing it in a photograph. I live in New England (USA) and love the beauty that all four seasons afford us! I am blessed to have my camera with me to capture all the beauty that I see along my travels.

“Some photographers take reality…and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation.”

*Great artists are people who find the way to be themselves in their art. Any sort of pretension induces mediocrity in art and life alike.
