My career choice was highly influenced by my dad, the art teacher. Ceramics, mosaics, batik, jewelry making, relief and wood sculpture, and many illustration techniques were all parts of my childhood. My dad set up a dark room in our house the summer before I began 8th grade, and I caught the bug! Although not a common practice these days, there is nothing like seeing an image that I captured materialize in the developing tray.
After intensive photography training at Ohio University, I achieved my BFA and set out for Chicago for a chance to prove myself. With 30 years experience shooting everything from celebrities to jewelry to room sets, my dad is proud of me and what I’ve accomplished.
The business of photography has evolved over the decades in many incredible ways that I could never imagine back then. But the fundamental act of capturing an interesting, beautiful, and captivating image remains the same.
