Born in '72, a Midwest girl from the small town of Monroe, Michigan. I began my collegiate years in my hometown at Monroe County Community College, transferring to Eastern Michigan University earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in 1992 where I purchased my first camera, a Pentax K1000 - the day my world changed. In April 1998, I moved to Savannah, Georgia to further my studies in photography and graphic design at the Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), earning a Master of Fine Arts degree in 2001. A graphic designer by day, photographer and artist all other hours - creating is my life.
Several of my photos have been recognized in exhibitions from Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in New Mexico, PhotoPlace Gallery in Vermont, and the Atlanta Photography Group (APG), Atlanta, Georgia.
In my free time, when I'm not in class learning to paint the figure under the great Charles Young Walls, hand lettering, or playing with my cats Baby Girl and Cricket, I am traveling with my husband, spending as much time as I can hiking and enjoying our National Parks.
