2019 Artist of the Month
"As children, our job is to play. Through play, we discover the world around us by engaging in multisensory experiences. On our path to adulthood, we tend to become submerged in the day-to-day demands of work and relationships and often lose sight of the joy of discovery. I was smitten by the magic of photography the first time I set foot in the dark room. Sometimes I take pleasure in capturing the moment for its form or color. Other times I try to expand the boundaries of reality. In recent years, I have stepped out from behind the lens to create mixed media pieces. Returning to the multisensory experiences of youth, discovering a new technique with each piece.....what joy!"
