I grew up on a farm in Ohio with animals, barns, grain fields, and forests. Here I received my faith in God, my love of animals, and respect for nature. I came to Atlanta after college and had a career in data processing. My husband and I retired to the beautiful Georgia mountains in 2002.
I loved to take pictures on the many trips we took all over the world for business and adventure. After retirement I took 5 years of art lessons, and then took on-line photography courses and read many books on photography. I began volunteering as photographer at our local animal shelter.
I will take many pictures to get just one of the emotion I think best captures the moment. I process the raw photos to develop the scene as I remember it, shining the focus on what I want to share with you.
