From my earliest memories I have loved photography. After being diagnosed with Retinitis Pigmentosa 16 years ago, I have wanted to capture more and more of the beauty around me before I can no longer “see.”
After my children were grown, I developed a more serious interest in learning about photography from family members who were professionals and through books to learn the ins and outs of manual cameras.
As a visually impaired photographer I have found solace while capturing the beauty that surrounds us. When I am out in the field, I let the world slide away and my camera take me to a place where I feel whole and invigorated. I feel that looking at an appreciating nature has a very calming effect and positive healing vibe. I hope that others also find the healing and solace through my work.
