With a degree in Environmental Studies and a minor in Art from Rutgers University, my heart has always belonged to both nature and creative expression. Early in my career, I moved on from the Forest and Park Services to art administration and education, all along still indulging my creative vein through ceramics and jewelry-making. After returning from a six-week sojourn to Japan in 2010 with over 3500 photos, I decided to pursue photography and digital art as a primary medium of expression.
Now, as I hike, ski, paddle and peddle through nature’s landscapes, what my camera sees and what I experience are often different. I seek to reconcile that difference through digital editing. With a passion for organic textures and forms that borders on obsession, I am grateful that the computer allows me to use nature’s textures as my palette.
