After growing up in Houston, Texas, I earned a degree from the University of Texas at Austin in Germanic languages while pursuing photography as a minor study. My photography work ranges from the boardroom to the barn. As a lifetime freelance photographer, I have worked extensively for the University of Houston Downtown, doing the photography for their annual reports, as well as South Texas College of Law and Rice University. I do work for Herring Design in Houston as well as national and multinational corporations.
I am a longtime member of the American Society of Media Photographers and my work has been featured in Working Cowboys with artist Mark Kohler, in Texas photography exhibits, and in many corporate annual reports. My personal photographs of the West stand to remind many Texans of a not so distant personal past. I am the photographer for the popular travel/recipe book The Texas Hill Country – A Food and Wine Lover’s Paradise and am beginning work on a second book also involving wonderful Texas local food and wine.
I am a well-traveled photographer and work constantly on improving my French. I spend time each spring or summer in the south of France, photographing its people and places. I live in Houston with my husband, Steve, while my child Wilson pursues a career in photography from Washington, D.C. I enjoy cooking, carpentry, gardening, travel and reading.
