Between 2011 and 2014, I was the gallery coordinator at Smithtown Township Arts Council and had the pleasure of meeting so many talented people and learning so much more about the art world.  Now, my husband Rick and I, reside in Southport, NC.  It's an old fishing town and a tourist attraction.    Before the town was named Southport, it was Smithville. What a coincidence!

Recently my focus has changed in my photography, with nature and birds being upfront and personal for me.   In the past, the black and white film images have always been my favorite and still are, as well as people caught in the spur of the moment.

Living near the ocean and all the wild life that is all around is so inspiring. Everyday is a gift unfolding beautiful miracles.
