reflecting...

photography galleries

Every picture tells a story. Every city has a story to be told. I love the challenge of seeking images that can visually tell a unique narrative of a city's heart and soul. Everyday life which can appear mundane, can actually be amusing and edifying. It's fun to wander like a stray dog, knowing that something new is waiting to be discovered around every corner, in every city.

Since childhood, I’ve had a penchant for mysteries and puzzles. Reflections with their odd juxtapositions intrigue me. Their layered imagery reveals the surrealism that lies just beneath the surface. I'm drawn into this "double exposure" that suggests that nothing is ever what it appears to be. I look for the unusual in the usual, often patiently waiting for a passerby to merge into the reflection. Many of my images have hidden components that add a touch of mystery. But these hidden gems are only apparent to those that take the time to look more deeply!

Please enjoy my galleries and come back often to see what is new. All images are available as prints. Prints are available in various sizes and on different mediums - paper, canvas, and metal. I'm also happy to mat and frame your selection. To order, please contact me.               

design studio

In my design studio, I work with a fabric palette, playing with textures, patterns, and color to create intricate whimsical designs. Each piece is enhanced with free-motion stitching and unique embellishments and trims. My art pieces have been printed as note cards that can purchased in the store.

 My artistic career began designing art quilts and self-publishing patterns/books through my company, The Picket Fence. I've exhibited at International Quilt Festivals and trade shows across the United States. My teaching workshops include PBS and HGTV as well as hands on workshops at specialty trade shows. Although I am no longer actively designing under The Picket Fence, patterns are available in limited quantities. please visit my design studio page.

I'm always happy to receive inquiries about my work. Please email me here.
