I am a nature photographer and enthusiastic walker and traveler. For some time, I have specialized in close-ups of native flowers and pollinators and nature patterns, and my mantra has been “slow down, look around, get low.” In addition, in recent years, I have been experimenting with black and white landscapes. I love the creative freedom of digital photography, from capture to the digital darkroom to print. And I appreciate the many ways digital photographs can be used, from prints to notecards and calendars to t-shirts and books.
A former president of the Palo Alto Camera Club, I have exhibited at galleries such as the Pacific Art League, Filoli, and Borrego Art Institute. Organizations like Peninsula Open Space Trust, Midpeninsula Regional Open Space District, California Native Plant Society, Environmental Volunteers, and North American Nature Photography Association have used my photography in signage and publications. Images have also been published in Room to Breathe: The Wild Heart of the San Francisco Peninsula, edited by Kristi Britt, and California Native Gardening: A Month-by-Month Guide by Helen Popper.
