About Me

Writing with Light is my prompt when my camera & I are exploring .I see how light surrounds and shapes an ordinary object into a thing of beauty! I don’t use a flash. I prefer existing light. Love of B&W became a handpainting delight.A brush of color to intrigue the eye gave it a new life. The transluscent oil on the B & W image created a new one!!. My imagination wanted to play and my inspirations joined in. Together, we took great delight in making up these visual stories for you!

2023 – The Corner of Dew Drive Street

The cities of Venice and Paris give a photographer many hours of delightful changing light. It was a joy to capture. I always had an array of angles to shoot from, a new pattern to see or reflections to admire. The addition of my hand painting gives the images the romance and subtle elegance they deserve.
