I love to share my passion for Michigan’s amazing wildlife, helping others to understand and appreciate the importance of guarding our natural resources through my photography. I love to blend into the environment and quietly observe my subjects, being as unobtrusive as I can, resulting in some rare and special moments captured. Blending artistry and nature into one is a satisfying venture that I love to share.
I have lived for over 40 years in the Northwest Lower Peninsula of Michigan with my husband, Michael. I graduated from CMU with my B.S. in B.A. But, I discovered my passion for wildlife photography over 20 years ago. When not managing Mary’s of Boyne, I spend as much time as possible at Seney National Wildlife Refuge, photographing wildlife and journaling my observations. In the winter, I spend time in our eagle research blind studying the American bald eagle or out monitoring snowy owls, our winter visitors from the Arctic tundra.
