“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” - Henry David Thoreau

My passion for photography started when I received my first camera at the age of 10, a Kodak Brownie. The wonderful photos in the Life Magazines that came weekly to my home also inspired me. Now whenever I have a break in my busy life, I am either reading, studying, collecting or playing with photography. I was born and raised in Newton, Massachusetts and attended the University of Denver in Colorado. I met my husband Tom backpacking in Europe in 1972. I have worked for Jay Baxter CPA for 25 yrs as an Accountant and an Enrolled Agent. I reside in Utica, IL and have two grown children and two grandchildren.

Philosophy:
Photography gives me the opportunity by capturing light, space and time to share through my eyes the joy, splendor and truth of life.
-I find my inspiration from nature. I love subjects that signify beauty and harmony and those usually include landscapes, sunsets, animals, flowers, birds, water reflections, butterflies and trees. I look for compositions where the interplay between light, form, color and subject inspire my heart. I am successful if the final result gives me the same reaction I felt when I took the photo.

My Current Cameras:
Canon Digital EOS 30D 8.2 Mega pixel SLR
Olympus Camedia Digital c-4040zoom 4.1 megapixel F1.8 zoom lens
