My passion for photography began while attending a private college in Vermont. I received a B.A. Degree in Photography while unofficially being the school photographer. I was also involved in community theatre and had been the photographer for many shows. I submitted many of my photographs to the local newspapers for various events and the majority of the time, they were accepted.
After college, I returned to the East Coast where I grew up and met friends who owned sailboats. I ended up taking Power Squadron classes, learned to be first mate, learned to splice line and was the first woman in town to have my own jet boat (12' two seater with 50 hp engine). I wanted a fast boat to help with getting around Long Island Sound to photograph boats. I also sailed often and photographed many sailboat regattas and club events. Now living in Ohio, being a musician, I have photographed numerous musical jams and events, I am also blessed with many opportunities to travel to Europe and to the East Coast as well as traveling West.
