About Me: 

In my working life I was a teacher and later for many years, an instructor at a college teaching gemmology to the gem trade. I also had a small wholesale gem business.

My first job as a teenager was in a photography studio where I learned to develop film.  I have continued photography since then. A visit to the Daintree Rainforest in Australia in 2011 reawakened my love of animals and I began to photograph birds and wildlife.  

 I love to travel. Like sourcing gemstones, my photography has led me to many places in the world from Borneo to Africa and Alaska. It has shown me how interdependent we are with the planet's environment and its living things. 

My work has been recognized in National Geographic Top 25 Owl photographs,  Canadian Geographic, BBC Earth, BBC Wildlife Magazine, The Times Sunday Times  UK, Wild Planet Photo Magazine, Paw Trails and published locally in the Surrey BC Travel Guide, Experience Delta Magazine, and The Daily Hive.  Featured in the 2022 Bird Photographer of the Year book and awarded a Commended in the competition. 

I hope my photography inspires and encourages you to participate in protecting the natural world for future generations.
