I studied Fine Art Studio at Dawson College in Montreal, QC. In 1988, I went on to receive a Bachelor of Fine Arts Degree with Honours in Photography from the University of Ottawa in Ottawa, ON. Upon Graduation I followed a path that lead to Desktop Publishing/Page Layout and Graphic Design. I freelanced at several high tech firms in the Ottawa Region, including: Mainstreet Studios/Newbridge Networks, Canada Post Corporation, and even worked for an Advertising Agency.
I started photographing horses around 1993, when I purchased my first horse. I boarded her at a competitive (Hunter) riding stable—naturally I went to a few shows, took lots of photographs.
In 2001, my husband Paul and I decided to have a family and together decided that I would stay home and raise our son(Brennan). After being a stay-at-home Mom for ten years--it was time to begin again in some new way. Brennan is in grade 4 and more independent, I am able to re-focus and do something that I am passionate about. I am passionate about my family, horses and photography. We live on a hobby farm with three horses, three ponies and a Terrier named Beau.

I have had the opportunity to travel to New Mexico and to the Pryor Mountains to attend Wild Horse Workshops with Fine Artist Lynne Pomerantz. I have also gone to the Carolina Foothills, and Colorado on EPNet workshops. Most recently, I had the opportunity to learn post processing techniques from fine art photographer Bobbie Goodrich, a Team Nik™ Software member, and Susan Lei Burns, accomplished videographer and fine art photographer, at their workshop The West…Redefined in beautiful Colorado. I continue to work on my photography skills and my portfolio.
