I started designing my Still Life Art as a compliment to go with my clients' pictures of their children. I had been a children's photographer in Seattle specializing in black and white hand tinted photography for 15 years. Time after time I would hear, "We love our pictures of our children, we just can't seem to find any art to go with it." That's where the idea began! I would design my Still Life Art Collection with the same European Dream-like Vintage style that I specialized in with my Children's Photography. With each image I try to create a magical timeless feel along with inspirational words. This has now become my specialty, Fine Art Photography. It is a combination of my three careers in the art field, graphic design, photography, art and a love for vintage jewelry and all things sparkly!
Thirty two years ago I began my Professional Artist career as a Graphic Designer and Art Director in Los Angeles for 15 years for the Music industry, Designing and Art Directing album covers for recording artists. In 1991 we moved to Seattle and I began taking black and white photographs of my children and then hand tinting them with oils. (A talent passed down through my Great Grand Father.) That's when my career as a Children's Photographer began. I was privileged to photograph several of the Seattle Seahawks families and hundreds of other beautiful families in the Seattle area.
In 2009 I fell in love and married a Montana man. I now live on a bluff overlooking the Missouri River, surrounded by the most breath-taking scenery and wildlife. The perfect setting for constant inspiration for creating my Fine Art Photography!
