I enjoy sharing my love of the rural landscape and way of life. Whether it’s “the big picture” of New England scenery, a leaf detail or a farm animal, I consider myself lucky that others enjoy how I see the world. One of my favorite compliments was someone who said, “I look at things now that I didn’t pay attention to before.”
I love grabbing my camera and exploring nearby woods and fields or driving the back roads of Vermont. Sometimes I’ve been there before and want to revisit it in a different season or time of day. Other times, there’s new territory to explore and every turn brings a photographic opportunity. My “Hearts in Nature” is another way of exploring the outdoors and it continues to grow. In the last few years I have spent many hours observing and photographing a one-eyed gray fox and local resident loons and eagles.
While a few photos are taken further away, most of my work is done within 15 miles of my Vermont home. The website is just a partial collection of my photos, so if there is something that you are searching for, feel free to contact me or follow me on Facebook for my most recent work. I may already have the perfect shot.
I’ve enlarged my line and added sets of coasters and packs of smaller cards. I am especially thrilled to work with two local companies owned by young women to create these items.

At this point, I have no scheduled shows, craft fairs or slide show talks. As the year progresses, I am hoping to add some. Please feel free to contact me or follow me on Facebook for updated information.
