Quiet places evoking peace, beauty and a feeling of mystery
are areas I often visit. Appearing
For me, the development and printing processes lead to the culmination of
a conceptualist journey.
My passion for travel provided the first inspirations for my exploration of photography. A native of Los Angeles, I studied in Norway before moving to Oregon in 1978, where I live today with my husband and our two cats.
A career in the travel business allowed me to explore many foreign countries, where I found inspiration in
out-of-the-way scenes that transcend borders and cultures.
As my work has evolved, it has become more conceptual and expressive in style and less documentary. Glimpses of the sublime, the moment after, a pleasant surprise: these translate for me into quiet pieces of poetry, not in verse form, but through the photographic process.
