BIO
I was raised in White Plains, New York, by parents who were very artistic and musical. My mother studied art at Cornell University, and was always working on something in clay or on paper as we were growing up. My father was a Master Electrician and Plumber, and had a wonderful baritone voice and a deep love for classical music. I wanted to be an artist, but I was frustrated by my inability to make my drawings look perfect. At the age of fifteen, the solution became to make a career in photography, and my parents gave me some used Nikon equipment and a credit account at the local camera store. I went on to earn a B.F.A. with Highest Honors at Rochester Institute of Technology in upstate New York.
After graduation in 1977, my then husband and I moved to Denver, where I worked as a portrait photographer in various studios for a couple of years. Then I had my son and daughter, and started a business in a studio in my basement. This worked well when they were preschool age, because photography is a nights and weekends kind of endeavor and my husband could watch them while I worked. I could foresee that this would backfire once they were in school, so I went to college at Metropolitan State in Denver to earn a teaching certificate in Art K-12. I had intended to teach photography, but the program required a diverse set of art courses as well, and I had matured to the point where my fear of imperfection was easier to silence. I enjoyed courses in ceramics, sculpture, drawing, painting, jewelry-making, and print-making. I ended up teaching elementary art.
My marriage ended in 1997, and I married an old friend in 1998. We decided to move to Lincoln, Arkansas, where my parents had moved to join my retired grandparents. The thought of returning to teaching at three schools at a time with 900 kids was giving me nightmares, so I worked for five years at a camera store as a portrait photographer and teacher. Two and a half years ago, I decided to open my own studio called Abundant Light Photography, and I’ve enjoyed the creativity and challenges involved in starting my own business. I’ve continued to explore other media, including watercolors and ceramics, as well as doing nature photography in my spare time.
