I purchased my first camera, a Minolta XG-A in college and have had an on again/ off again relation with my camera through the years. I reluctantly gave up film for a Nikon D70 soon after my children were born. I grew to love that camera, and still have it. Unfortunately, I broke my good lens and had to find a replacement. This year I upgraded to the Olympus E-10 Mark III, a mirrorless model. I take photos of just about anything that catches my eye. Nature, travel, action, street art, people and animals are all good subjects for me. More photos can be viewed at the Photocrowd website.
Please join us at the opening reception for the ALC’s group show at the Peg Williams Gallery in Short Stories Bookshop in Madison. The reception is open to public.

Good Luck everyone!
I have been involved with art most of my life and one of my earliest
memories is getting a Jon Nagy drawing set as a gift. I have an art degree
and taught art in the public school system for seven years. Feeling
unsatisfied, I changed my interest and pursued art therapy education and
practice. While raising my children I had a home based business making and
selling hand thrown Folk Art pottery. This followed with a career in
Activity management in long term care facilities.
In 2008, I returned to art and began lessons using watercolor medium. I
fell in love with the color, the loose intermingling on paper creating
exciting accidents and textures, layers and fusions of color. I prefer
working on hot press paper and recently, yupo-which is not a paper at all,
but a surface of excitement.
I have studied with local and national instructors and continue that
process. I also teach a process oriented watercolor class in Northern NJ.
I continue to learn and practice and experiment in pursuit of the excitement
the media offers. My subjects are very personal stories of importance on my
journey to greater self awareness and skill development.
