Born in Michigan, 1975

Studied at the Art Institute of Atlanta

I fell in love with photography when I took a class in high school and experienced developing film and printing my images for the first time. I continued studying photography at the Art Institute of Atlanta, learning about alternative processes like cyanotype and polaroid and emulsion transfers. At the Art Institute, I earned the Best Portfolio Award for the Commercial Photography Diploma program.


I have been married for 27 years and have one daughter in college and one graduate. My spiritual gift and love language is serving, so the way I show love to others is by doing things for them. My Myers-Briggs personality type is INFJ, which means I have a strong desire to make the world a better place. I love God and I see Him in the beauty He created. A few of my favorite things include running, coffee, gardening, the beach, Harry Potter, and Lord of the Rings. I challenge myself to look at things in a different way, discovering beauty and magic in the ordinary.
