In Her Words
It has been said that the camera reflects both ways. Every vision I capture reflects my heart being touched by the soul of wild places and their inhabitants. Like the artists of the 19th Century who used brushes and paints to capture the majesty and wonder that brought the West to life, leading to the creation of America’s National Park System, I use the modern medium of photography to excite wonder, wonder that engenders respect for life and inspires environmental stewardship of the fragile beauty of nature, especially those threatened and endangered, for the enjoyment of generations to come.
