  Welcome to my blog!
Colorado fine art photography featuring life and nature in the American West.

 I moved to Colorado more than 20 years ago and have always been an avid outdoors enthusiast. In 1999 I moved to a house we built in the forest of the Rocky Mountains where we lived off grid with solar power, well water, and cliff hanging dirt roads for twelve years. It was a unique experience that connected me to my environment in a very personal way and definitely influenced my work.

Our Rocky Mountain off grid home.

Many of my photographs were shot in this personal environment where I once lived. Colorado has so many wonderful opportunities for shooting photography. I have also traveled extensively in America's West shooting the Pacific Northwest, red rock canyons of the Four Corners, and the California coast.

My idea of fun!  I'm shooting Spider Rock in Canyon de Chelly, Arizona.

Besides my passion for photography, I love traveling, hiking in the mountain forests, reading, and sharing my life with my husband, daughter and two dogs.
