'In my mid-20s, after a college degree and employment in fields unrelated to photography, I bought a new camera, an upgrade from my Instamatic. Watching photographer friends at work something clicked and I realized “I can do that!”.  Finally I found what was right for me, not what I was “supposed” to be doing as a woman starting out in that era.  

I’m naturally curious, and an explorer, so my camera became a natural extension of that very nature.  Photography was It. I was a natural. It was meant to be. Living in Boston, I took a box of prints to the MIT Creative Photo Lab and they allowed me to audit classes for the year, free.  When the year ended, I started freelancing and working on personal projects.    

That was 40 yrs ago.  

I photograph where life leads me, being open to the world as it presents itself. I work without preconceived notions or predetermined outcomes. When I'm shooting it’s like a form of meditation with nothing else going on except what’s in front of me. My camera and I are synced.'
