One of the advantages of growing older is that I have been able to leave behind the conceit that one must be the next Picasso or Ansel Adams to be an artist. This has freed me to share my images with the community outside of my family and friends. I hope you enjoy them

After my father died in 1980, my mother handed me his all manual, no automatic anything Minolta SLR camera and said "you take this, it's too complicated, Ill never learn to use it." I resolved then never to say "I can't learn" anything that I really want to learn. I had an art degree from the University of Maryland, but the necessity of supporting myself had by then distracted me from my dream of being an artist. Dad's camera became my good friend, allowing me to create images to share with friends and family, and once in a blue moon, to enter in a contest or a show.
I wore out Dad's camera, and I wore out its replacement. I started wearing out my husband Wayne's camera when our budget wouldn't accommodate a new one. When my brother asked us to photograph our niece's wedding, Wayne suggested that if we were going to provide wedding photos to a bride living 300 miles away, it was time to go digital. Digital photography has been both a challenge and a delight!
