Born in London, England 1956. Graduated College with a BA in fine Art. I have travelled the world all my life. I always loved to take pictures and capture the moment. Before leaving on a family trip to Africa, I decided to purchase a second camera, a point and shoot Leica, compact and powerful enough to be able to carry with me on Safari and use at a moments notice.
It was there in Kenya that I picked up a book on photographs by Mirella Ricciardi. It was a photographic journal of her life in Africa. I was hooked!
I have always wanted to contribute to help the people of Africa that so desperately need water and I found an amazing group that I will support. They are called the ' Raincatcher '
I have two grown children, four dogs and six cats.
I live close to the ocean.
I feel that it is time for me to give back so I am using my photographs to raise money to help those in need.
