Hello -- thank you for stopping by! Like most of us, I've been taking pictures with my phone for years, but when someone suggested a camera -- Canon all day, every day! -- that's when the adventure began. 

During my 35-year editing and layout career at daily newspapers, I worked with and learned from some of the most talented photographers in the business. One of those lessons? Notice everything. I try. I hope my images touch you, whether it's a pull on the heart, a chuckle or a quiet appreciation of this beautiful world -- these moments matter.

As a proud founding member of the Cowgirl Artists of America, if you see a photo that speaks to you, please speak to me! I'd love to help you out, especially if the image doesn't fit the standard sizes. 

I couldn’t do any of this without help from my patient husband, Randy, my biggest cheerleader, who runs interference both literally and figuratively. I love you.
