I live on the road in my RV traveling the USA for photography and fun in nature.

Growing up in Massachusetts, then living in Colorado and now on the road, I’ve been drawn to wildlife photography. I sometimes get so enamored by nature that I actually miss capturing the photograph. That means I must visit a place several times. First to get the feel for the place and then to capture it. Nature brings me such joy and peace and I strive to convey that in my work.
Part of the challenge of being a wildlife photographer is being at the right place at the right time. Getting out often is essential because I’ll never get a great picture if I don’t get out!
One time, in Yellowstone National Park, I waited for hours listening to wolves howling, but I never set eyes on one. Other days, it all comes together and I am blessed with some of the most amazing shots!
One of the things I like the best about my work is observing how people respond differently to the same image. For example, a black and white photo can evoke feelings of coldness, severity, peacefulness, calmness, relaxation, or even, violence. I love listening to people sharing their feelings about my art.
Most wildlife photographers are men. Being a woman, I think I bring a feminine eye to wildlife. Maybe it’s that I have a different eye; or that I try different angles to get a special view; or maybe I just see the simple beauty of an animal in its element. Whatever the reason, people are right when they tell me “I can tell you love your job.” And I do!
