Profile Location

Life holds a beauty that I enjoy and my passion in life is capturing that beauty through photography. I find it exciting seeing the world through the eye of the camera and hope viewing my photos gives you as much pleasure as I have received while taking them.

I am an aspiring, award winning photographer who has participated in numerous photography contests and art shows.  I receive great pleasure in capturing nature’s beauty while taking photos and in doing so, it allows me to express my freedom while escaping the box that Spina Bifida creates. I was introduced to photography through 4-H and had excellent photography teachers along the way. 

Shooting from a wheelchair gives my work a unique perspective and I am very willing to do whatever it takes to capture the right angle. God has given us wondrous beauty all around and hopefully my photographs capture some of it.           

Artist Statement

Having the opportunity to share my view of life and the amazing beauty and wonder God has given me is my passion. Views from a wheelchair are always unique and many times what I see in a crowd is obstructed by the surrounding people. But, when the crowd clears, I use my upbeat, creative attitude to capture the beautiful world around us. My unique perspective of unusual angles, shapes, and scenes visible only from my wheelchair helps make my photography individual. I have been perfecting the art of my photography for over ten years and began showcasing my work in 2006. I particularly love capturing wildlife at rest in their natural habitat. I am so thankful for the acceptance and appreciation of my work from fellow lovers of photography. It is said that “A picture is worth a thousand words”. This is true. But a picture from “down under” is truly my offering to you. I share a new view of things short, tall and ever present in everyday world. Come and enjoy that perspective with me.
