I’ve been very focused on developing my photo series, I AM: For the love of nature. My ultimate goals are a solo show and book. My path is to submit to juried exhibitions and photography reviews. So far, I’ve been greeted by much support and acceptance. I do what I do because it speaks to […]

I recently applied to The Creative Portrait exhibition, presented by the Los Angeles Center of Photography. I felt it was a long shot, but I was wrong! Three of my photographs were accepted into the online gallery and I am thrilled. I have so much respect for the jurors and wanted them to at least […]
Artists and writers have faced the blank canvas / the blank page and chronicled so much about the experience. In 2014, taking my first film class, I made a short student film to address the mood on a dark and rainy day on Maui. My partner, artist Shane Robinson, indulged me and played the part […]
I’ve been a “peace nik” since my high school days, when I canvassed my Republican neighborhood in protest of the Vietnam War. (Results: Fail. I don’t think I changed a single mind.)

With hindsight in my hands, I now think of this experience as my first ‘performance art’ piece. I had been studying the scientific benefits of touch when I traveled to New York City to run a 5K race at midnight on New Year’s Eve in 1989. It was also my birthday and I wanted to […]
This photograph is part of my “I AM” series, which are nude portraits of myself exploring the natural states of the female form as expressed in the midst of nature itself. As a 65 year old woman and emerging artist, I am curious about the lines between nakedness and sexuality, between self-expression and exhibitionism, between acting and resting, between body perfect and body positive.
