I am a fine art photographer born in San Francisco, California. I specialize in creating beautiful oversized landscape and nature prints of North America while exploring parks, public lands and other wonderful places of interest in my motorhome with my two little dogs.
I fell in love with outdoor and wilderness photography while backpacking in Yosemite and working with my father in his "darkroom" as a young girl. I completed numerous photography and art classes in college at San Jose State University located in the San Francisco Bay Area, California.
My lifelong passion for wandering through nature, love for outdoor adventure and interest in landscape photography drives me to create attractive and deep visions of our natural environment that I am delighted to share with others. My style is colorful, lively, yet comforting. I am inspired by a strong bond I have with our magical world and my non-stop desire to explore the USA and Canada.
Many of 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 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 on large commercial projects. I am also available for special assignments. My work enhances the walls of many interiors including homes, golf courses, restaurants, business office spaces, apartments, hospitals and more. Most of my photographs can be printed as numbered limited edition oversized wall art which can add an inviting decor statement to your walls.
