A Little Bit About Me

I began learning and loving photography in college, but it’s only been since my dementia diagnosis and subsequent disability that its importance in my life has become apparent. It’s an activity that brings me peace for those times when living with dementia overwhelms.

 Unable to continue my life in the analytical world of tax accounting, the creative side of my brain is able to thrive more. The Earth is full of beauty, wonder, and life. My work attempts to bring appreciation and respect for our planet.

I also use my work as a tool to further awareness for dementia, mental health, and homelessness. If you would like me to speak to your group, or assist with a project on these causes, please contact me.

  I am expanding my photography in ways that incorporate my poetry into my photographs. I am also exploring ways to create “hybrid” and enchantment photography. Come back often to see what’s new!

I am a member of the 4th Floor Artists, Inc., based in Rockland, MA and I am also an Advisory Board Member of the Dementia Action Alliance. Born, raised, and living in New England, though I have lived and travelled around the country. 

Help change the narrative on dementia and eliminate the stigmas. Those of us living with a type of dementia can still live with a purpose.  Check out the DAA website.
