I have enjoyed nature and travel photography for many years but only in the last few years it became an important part of my life. Photography was and is for me like meditation/ escape through some difficult years.
The last birthday present I received from Willy, my late husband, was a Nikon Coolpix P500 camera. In order to learn how to use the manual options I took classes at the Glendale Community College and it opened doors to a new world and friendships.
My "passion" is in the aesthetics and not so much into the technicality of photography. I retired last year, my goal is to develop photography as a "second career". I recently moved to Paso Robles and joined in the Paso Robles Art Association and The Photography Guild. I have been participating in the PRAA monthly juried exhibitions since September 2018.
From 2008- 2015 I had the opportunity to participate in un-judged art exhibits twice a year through my work at USC:
My first recognition- got 3rd place in an online competition :
2014 Barnsdall's Park Open Call exhibit.
