I am a fine art nature photographer, and winter's beauty is my passion. Photography is my creative way to express and share my love for nature with others. I try to capture the uniqueness and beauty that the casual observer might over look - patterns, colors, textures, and stories. To create an unusual perspective I don't hesitate to get down on my hands and knees or on my belly; yes, even in the snow.

I began studying photography 15 years ago and used it as an excuse to go for a hike or spend a leisurely day at a botanical garden. In 2012, Whitehead Press published my winter images and essays in an award winning collection entitled Art of Winter: A Photographic Essay. It offers an unparalleled look into the heart of winter, displaying the beauty that winter creates with snow and ice.

For some images I am lucky - I was in the right place at the right time, such as getting close ups of an otter searching for breakfast or a richly colored sunrise, even if it meant I had to crawl out of my warm bed earlier than I'd otherwise prefer. Other images are created due to persistence, by taking of hundreds of images a day.

My husband and I live off-the-grid on Drummond Island, Michigan on the shores of Lake Huron where I fell in love with winter. Along with photography and writing, I enjoy reading, contra dancing, hiking, good cooking and anything related to water - swimming, snorkeling, canoeing and sailing.

Having twice missed a great shot of a bear, I now carry a camera where ever I go, as I never know when the next great image will present itself. I hope you enjoy!
