WE ONLY SEE THE MOMENT.  THE CAMERA CAPTURES THAT MOMENT FOREVER!

Words will never be enough to explain the wild beauty of this area. Photos bring Shelter Cove to life.

I was born and raised in Williamsville New York, just outside of Buffalo. One of the snowiest places on earth! I attended Buffalo State University as an Art Major, married my high school sweetheart, and raised three great sons… (I wouldn’t know what to do with a girl.)

Life has never been dull! From Buffalo to England and from Arizona to Shelter Cove.

I could bore you with my life as wife, mother, office manager and teddy bear artist, but I won’t. Needless to say the experiences have been enriching.

Since moving to Shelter Cove I have taken hundreds of photos of plants and animals and the ocean. In case you haven’t noticed, (wink wink), It is beautiful here! The ever-changing sky, the sparkle of diamonds on the ocean late in the afternoon, the winter storms that bring dramatic winds and waves.

I’m still photographing my teddy bears. The bear photos are needed for my shows, but I have fallen in love with what my camera sees outside of the world of teddy bears. Hopefully my photos will capture a special moment that I can share with you.
