I am a fine art photographer born in San Francisco, California specializing in captivating landscape, nature, and travel photography of North America. I fell in love with outdoor and wilderness photography while backpacking in the Yosemite area and working with my father in his "dark room" as a young girl. I completed photography and art classes in college. My passion for exploring nature's beauty, desire for outdoor adventure along with my interest and knowledge of photography drives me to create attractive and deep visions of our natural environment that I am delighted to share with others. 

My photographs have been published in National Geographic, Outdoor Photographer Magazine, Landscape Photography Magazine, Digital Photo Pro Magazine, Sunset Magazine, California State Parks Foundation, Yosemite Journal and many others. My work has also been used widely in ads for television, books, brochures, and calendars.

I frequently work with interior designers and art consultants for corporate projects. My work enhances the walls of many interiors including homes, golf courses, restaurants, business office spaces, apartments, hospitals and more.

I've participated in juried photography exhibitions at Riverfront Art Gallery in Petaluma, California, Museum of Moab, Utah and Parson's Art Gallery located in Benicia, California.
