About Me:

I am a portrait artist, 47 years old, mother of two teens. I enjoy a good laugh. I see beauty everywhere. I am grateful for the comforts and conveniences of my life, yet sometimes long for a former era when everything was done by hand and human interaction was more prevalent than computer interaction.

Exhibit change by:

My photographic project explores how our age, as a number, acts to define us, influence our choices, and motivate us to action. One of my goals is to help women manage and accept their aging process, and to counteract the barrage of messages we receive daily that younger is better and more beautiful. The project is truly art for all people. It is not exclusive to the elite nor to the disenfranchised, but includes all groups as well as the much-overlooked average woman. It is art which touches and can be understood by every woman on some level.

I'm passionate about:

peace, education, communication, nonviolence, tolerance.
