I am a digital photographer who focuses on capturing the beauty and essence of botanicals. I particularly enjoy the detail revealed by macro lenses. Each flower has its own character, some soft and comforting, others bold and assertive.
I grew up in a florist family and was surrounded with floral elegance and aromas. That background led me to pursue a career in teaching high school biology, with strong emphasis on the roles of botanicals in our lives. Upon retirement, I took photography classes at a local community college and developed a renewed interest in expanding my expertise.
I am inspired by the softness of light in the morning as it rests on the flowers in my garden. The afternoon sun involves back lighting and a different hue to the floral image. I take photographs in personal and public gardens as well as within my studio. I have been nurtured and encouraged by comments on social media and at my photography shows.
