I studied Journalism and Marketing. Pursuing a practical profession that played to my strengths, I settled on a career with a renowned printing company. While I thrived in my career, I also nurtured my avocation.

 

Over the years I have taken classes and travel workshops in photography, practiced my craft and grew into a self-taught photographic artist.

 

Until recently, my style of photography has been of a documentary style, often capturing people in their native culture. I have been fortunate to have traveled to over 30 countries and have deepened my love for exploration, learning, and photography.

 

I have camped in Mongolia, cared for children in a Ugandan orphanage, hiked to the bottom of the Grand Canyon, trekked most of the National Parks, and kayaked in Alaska along the way,

Poppy Bud, Frankie Garr, 2021.

Friends tell me I notice what others overlook. I feel this is my gift as a photographer – having a keen sense of observation and vision through my lens. My photography is a glimpse into my intuitive and sensitive nature. My images reflect a world infused with stories and snippets in time. I have a passion to travel, explore and simply be the seeker, the observer. A quote by an unknown author sums up my photographic philosophy, “You don’t TAKE a photograph, you ask QUIETLY, to BORROW it.”

For my ARTservancy residency I am working with Tall Pines Conservancy (TPC), a nationally accredited, nonprofit land trust focused on preserving the Lake Country region and beyond.  

 

I chose TPC because of the combination of preserves, watersheds and farms. It feels natural to me. My father had a 40-acre maple syrup farm in upstate Pennsylvania and simply loved being outside. I know his love of the great outdoors has had a profound impact on me. I look forward to working with TPC, serving the mission to preserve and protect the heritage of farmland, water resources and natural open spaces in the area. By using my gifts to observe and “borrow,” I will strive to awaken awareness in others who may or may not realize the treasures we have and the responsibility to preserve them for future generations.
