Whether it's stalking shore birds, watching for the perfect ocean wave, or discovering a field of colorful wildflowers on a back road, for me, photographing nature is an exhilarating adventure. I challenge myself to create images that evoke a mood. My subject matter is anything touched by nature. I am intrigued by abstract compositions in coastal rocks and in rusty textures of mundane objects in a junkyard. My favorite area to explore and photograph is where I live part-time, on California's Central Coast.
I grew up in Sudan, the daughter of American parents. By contrast to where I now live, Sudan is a country filled with stark imagery. The landscapes I remember are thorny acacia trees dotting the sandy Sahara Desert and tall-sailed fishing boats floating down the Nile River.
Thank you for visiting my online gallery. I hope you enjoy looking around. Feel free to contact me with any questions or comments. I'd love to hear from you.
