I am a mom, a wife, a daughter, a hard worker and a lover of the beauty in this world. As I was searching for a picture of myself to post along with my biography, I realized that I am not in any…because I take all of them!
I love taking pictures and I love capturing special moments like a glance, a touch or a sigh. I love photographing people who are mentally engaged and capturing the essence of the emotion that has them so engaged.
I went to Mass Art to become an illustrator and I became an art teacher, which was THE most fulfilling job I’ve ever worked. I was blessed to be able to work with children from 1-5th grade in the public school sector, 6-12th graders in a private school sector and young adults at a two-year college. The hours were horrible, the pay was horrible, but I loved each and every one of those kids — except two. But each one has emailed me subsequently and I like them again; one even became an art teacher!
The most thrilling day of my life was standing on the top of the Arc of Triumph (in Paris) with a group of my high school art students. Each one of them came up to me astounded that my theory of two-point perspective could actually be true! I wish I had a camera to capture the look on their astonished faces…and mine!
Very fulfilled but very broke, I decided to go into that “web” thing everyone was talking about in the 1990’s. I had a hunch that it just might take off!
Ten years later and having worked on incredible websites like, Massachusetts General Hospital, Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Faulkner Hospital, The Massachusetts State House, Staples Advertising Agency and so many other cool places, I have decided that I’d like to leave the web graphics and programming world and go back to my love of images.
You can never forget your first love, right?
