How long have you been interested in photography?

Since I was 18 or 19. Long time :) Taken courses on and off including recent completion of certificate program at Midwest Photography Workshops. Accepted in juried shows at Art League in Alexandria, VA, and Ann Arbor Art Center. Started selling images last year or two.

What kind of camera do you use? (DSLR, point-and-shoot, make, etc...)

Nikon D7000 and newly purchased Sony A7 mirrorless full frame.

How do you want to grow as a photographer this year?

Establish more fully as fine-art photographer while increasing my skills in Lightroom and Photoshop while deepening and curating my online & print portfolios. Seek gallery representation.

If you could pick one spot in the state of Michigan to spend a few days making photographs, where would that be?

On any of the Great Lakes or connecting channels or islands. Not much interested in lighthouses though. The ecology, shoreline, water itself. .

Do you enjoy hiking, kayaking and camping?

Yes to hiking, no to kayaking, no to camping except in my small motorhome :)


I do fine-art photography with focus on the Great Lakes (my career, too), landscape, travel and street photography. I started Ann Arbor Women Photographers MeetUp early this year to develop network of serious women whose primary art is photography.
