About Me: 

 I was child in nature always studying insects, plants and animals, collecting fossils and rocks. Collecting rocks mineral specimens ultimately led me to study gemstones.  For many years I taught  gemmology to the gem trade and had a gemstone business.

After years of looking inside gemstones through a loupe and microscope, a visit to the Daintree Rainforest in Australia in 2011 had me photographing birds and rediscovering my love of animals and plants.  My first job as a teenager was in a photography studio where I learned to develop film.  After I graduated from university as a teacher, I bought my first camera, a Canon AE-1 and took photography night courses.

 Like sourcing gemstones, my photography has led me to many places in the world from Borneo to Africa and Alaska. Most importantly it has shown me how interdependent we are with the planet's environment and its living things. At home I'm with the owls.

My work has been recognized in National Geographic Top 25 Owl photographs,  Canadian Geographic, BBC Earth, BBC Wildlife Magazine, Wild Planet Photo Magazine among others and published locally in the Surrey BC Travel Guide, Experience Delta Magazine, and The Daily Hive.  

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