Following in my mother’s footsteps, I began taking black & white photographs in high school and continued the study of photography at college. I discovered color photography after switching over to digital, but black & white remains my passion. I love being in nature and take my camera with me on my daily walks. The images I take reflect my love for the Hudson Valley and the solace I feel being in nature and I attempt to capture the inherent stillness and beauty in the details. I’ve recently begun a series of portraits of women in their 50’s.
My photographs have appeared in Chronogram magazine, the HudsonValley Guide, Black & White magazine and the Catskill Mountain Region Guide, as well as at the Wilder Gallery in Catskill, NY.
