artist bio

Home: Holly, Michigan
Education: BS and MF (forestry) Michigan, PhD (forestry) Georgia
Writing experience: writing stories and poetry most of my life, little has been published outside of newsletters and other non-edited products. I read my poetry at live venues around Milwaukee.
Photography: started at age 12 and have kept it up. The work has been primarily used for scientific covers. Recently some of my images were used on the covers of a Chap Book "Burdock 12" published by Tepichpresser Press, 2012, in Milwaukee.
Most recently I have written two children's books, illustrated by my grand daughter. They are fairy tales based on family stories.

artist statement

I am a fine-art photographer seeking outlets for my work.

I write from the heart, describing those things that move me, amuse me, or disturb me at the moment. Recently I am finding poetry to be the best outlet for my desire to build images and tell stories.
