photography galleries

One aspect of street photography that I'm totally fascinated with is the artistry of reflection and juxtaposition. Window reflections are as common place as parked cars, but when you actually observe the layered imagery you see a surrealism that lies just beneath the surface. Reflections reveal a double exposure illusion where the reflection becomes the reality, suggesting that nothing is ever what it appears to be. My hope is that my images will shake up your visual muscles allowing you to see the unusual in the usual. Reflections are a moment in time capture!

My camera always accompanies me on hiking and cycling adventures. I share these images to showcase the beauty of our naturescapes and urbanscapes.

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.
