About

The video above was created by Preston Newell for Longmont Public Access Television about the artist and her work.

 

Having a strong connection with the environment and nature has created a desire to show people how sacred and ephemeral the land we take for granted is. I now use my photography to do this. Each tree, animal, body of water, insect, flower and any natural form has a great impact on our health,  happiness and a bright future.

My book  “Trees Speak,Healing Ourselves and Our Planet” has recently been published, wherein I write about what trees are and their importance to life on this planet. I included at least one beautiful photograph on each page, a chapter of poetry about trees, and some simple solutions that can help to create a healthier life for everyone.

Photography is a mystical experience for me. It is a way for me to express the inexpressible; that which is sacred in a world where not enough is held with high regard. My great passion is to continue creating fine images that evoke the mystery of nature while giving each subject a sense of the sacred to the viewer

With a degree in design and many years of photography classes from NYC design schools and professional teachers, I have been creating photographic art and portraits for over 30 years. I am a member of NOBO Arts, Flatirons Photography Club, and Boulder Chamber of Commerce.

Originally from New York, I am now living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado.
