I am a photographer who has been following horses around since I was old enough to carry a camera. I like to think I have a “quiet eye” with a style ranging from the photo-journalistic to the imaginative. My early influences included the classic “Painterly School” of photography, most especially Julia Margaret Cameron. Books, animals and humor figure prominently in my life and I strive to include the dry sense of humor and visual wit of photographer Elliot Erwit in my own work.
My husband/best friend of forty years and I live on an animal farm in Fayetteville, Tennessee where we are all retired and sometimes bake cookies for lunch.
