After a semester of photography in college, I became smitten with the absolute magic of that latent image emerging on the paper in its chemical bath. Amazing! I've been dabbling in photography ever since. With the encouragement of friends and the skills acquired through Columbia Community College classes in the '80s, I've participated in a variety of local and regional shows. I've been slow to transition to the digital darkroom (I sure miss that magic!). I love to travel, especially in the southwest, and many of my images are from my road trips. Since my retirement from education, I've begun to dabble in watercolor, playing with prints, pixels, and pigments.
