I’ve always been interested in art, the use of space, the interplay of shapes and the effects of color and light. I began photography early and won a contest and a Brownie camera at age ten. As a teacher of French and Russian, I frequently traveled to Europe both on my own and leading groups of students and adults, taking photographs wherever we went. I enjoy capturing views that others might miss, views that delight me and give a flavor of the surrounding culture. Now retired, I have been able to expand my travel and explore other continents. My photographs are in private and corporate collections in Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, Colorado, New York and Florida.
