I once worked as a bank manager and a dog biscuit maker but now think of myself as a photographer and writer. Living on the South Shore of Nova Scotia, I split my time between dog walking, beach walking, capturing weird and wonderful things with my camera, and touring my adopted province with my husband. If I'm lucky, I get to do all those things at the same time.


I believe in the power of real world experiences and prefer seeing my words and photographs in print rather than in social media. I have been fortunate to have my photographs exhibited in several group exhibits, and in February 2018 I hosted my first solo exhibit called Roots+Wings.


Six images from my Stroke of Emotions series were selected for a book called 2018 Seeing in SIXES, published by Brooks Jensen & Maureen Gallagher of LensWork. The project was also a Nominee in the International 5th annual Fine Art Photography Awards , Conceptual Photography.


For sixteen months, I wrote articles published by the Chronicle Herald under the by-line In Focus, available for viewing at this link. (click on "PREVIEW")


I continue to create photographic art and verse to illustrate a range of emotions. My images range from dark and brooding to light and inspirational, but always come from the heart.
