"Unexpected views of the ordinary - Ordinary views of the unexpected"

While my art comes from my camera, I don't consider myself as much a photographer as a photo artist.  I leave it to others more talented than I to shoot the Golden Gate Bridge or Niagra Falls.  My talent, so I've been told, is in seeing things differently, and capturing or creating what I see.

When I look around me, I see colors, textures, shapes, juxtapositions and possibilities. I capture what I can with my camera, and sometimes stop there. More frequently however, I begin playing with color and fantasy to create something more that what I captured mechanically. I love working with digital processes, manipulating color and light, transforming one shape into another, etc. Much of my inspiration comes from painters, probably Hopper and Thiebaud more than others.  

I have lived in London and New York and am now back where I started in San Francisco. Though I've been creating art since I was a child, I spent most of my adult life in non-art careers. I began defining myself as an artist in the 90's when I started a graphic and web design business, pulling together my art interests and my fascination with computers. In the last few years, my passion and developing skill with the endless possibilities of digital manipulation have finally taken me into the joyful world of fine art.

Several of my works have received Awards at the San Francisco Women Artists Gallery where I have had pieces in over two dozen juried shows. My work has also been exhibited at the Still Point Online Gallery in Maine, Misho Gallery and The Artist Alley in San Francisco, the Twin Pines Art Center in Belmont, at the Expressions Gallery in Berkeley and the CK Gallery in Piedmont. I participated with 3 other photographers in a group show in San Francisco's North Beach in 2011 and have had three solo shows at the Bay View Boat Club in San Francisco, with another scheduled for 2013.
