Born and raised in the lakeshore area of Wisconsin, I have long been drawn to nature, landscape, skies, solitude, observing the “is-ness” of things, and exploring my own “in-scapes.” I am multi-disciplinary and uniquely cross-trained in biology and natural science, visual art and media. I am presently working and exhibiting in digital photography, mixed media and installation.
I carry studio experience in black & white, film and digital photography, mixed media, installation, printmaking, oil and acrylic painting, ceramics. Professional experience includes gallery direction, writing and Web posting, public affairs research, international travel, humanitarian relief and community development work with Native Americans, in Haiti, West Africa and the Middle East. I am also engaged in media work in environmental studies, conservation, toxins, public health.
