I am a retired teacher of English. My husband and I spend our time between Lake Lure, NC and Fort Lauderdale, FL.
I have always indulged my creative side – whether through writing, playing the violin as a child and more recently, for the past fifteen years, photography.
The latter path was taken as a result of a trip to Africa for a safari. I wanted to return with viable images of the magnificent animals and topography that had always been uppermost on my ‘bucket list’. I purchased two Nikon cameras and equipment, and photography took over my life. It was an easy fit as compositions and a love of adventure have always been a priority for me.
I have since indulged my affinity for monochrome images through infrared. I converted my Nikon Z7 camera, and oftentimes only bring that with me so that I can train myself to experiment with different landscapes, waterscapes and weather conditions.
I am in several art groups, enjoy exhibiting, helping to set up shows, and have even begun to paint with acrylics.
