About

I am a mother of 4 boys and 1 girl and a grandmother of 14 (ages 9 and under) and two more on the way! Five years ago I moved from the city to 3 acres in the country with my husband and love it! From our home just outside of Winlock Washington, we have a wonderful view of fields and distant mountains including Mt St Helens and Mt Rainier The view also includes marvelous cloud formations and many rainbows.

Photography has been a part of my life since I was 12 years old. My first camera was a small Kodak Brownie. I have realized that the way I see the world is different than many around me. I look out the window and see pictures. I love nature!…… Trees, flowers, rainbows, sunrises, clouds and wildlife! I especially love to take photos of grandchildren!

After my son built my first computer, I discovered the world of digital photography and that interest gradually evolved into photo manipulation. As I started to restore family photos, I realized that I had a talent for this and my fascination, training and skill has continued to grow. My experience in painting* with oils, acrylics and glazes has been very useful as I work on photos and give them new life.

Other things about me…. I love to read, I love to prepare healthy, tasty meals and teach nutrition to those who show interest. My husband and are living a healthy lifestyle with produce from our raised bed garden, exercise, laughter and spiritual fulfillment.
