I live in the shadow of Pikes Peak in Colorado Springs, Colorado. My images explore my passions-- travel, nature, and dance. My work explores exotic places and vibrant living. I've been a photographer for over twenty years, and I also work in silk shibori. I was trained first as an opera singer and a dancer, then got my degrees in photography and humanities. I teach photography at the Art Institute of Colorado and Pikes Peak Community College in Colorado Springs.
