Personal Information

I’ve been a freelance photographer & illustrator over 20 years. I’ve taken classes and workshops, but I’m mainly self-taught in photography, drawing, painting, quilting and jewelry-making. Now that I’ve generally retired from my accounting career, I can focus more on my artistic side.

I’ve done some traveling, both in the US and internationally, and have captured images from this travel. However, some of my most favorite images are from familiar surroundings and places close to home. Love of gardening sparks my flower and landscape photography.

I use my own photography as a basis for my drawing and painting. The media I mainly use are acrylic, colored pencil, pen & ink, gouache, watercolor and pastels.

I’m a member of the Red River Watercolor Society, Colored Pencil Society of America, Bismarck Art and Galleries Association and the Detroit Lakes Photography Group.
