I was born in Peterborough in 1947, left and returned in 2004. In 2017, I celebrated being married 50 years to a wonderful man and great partner. I have two daughters who both live in the USA with their families, and grandmother to three amazing grandchildren who constantly bring me joy. I took up photography later in life. Photography has allowed me to see the world with a different perspective with the added pleasure of meeting some wonderful people along the way.
I am currently a member of Spirit of the Hills Arts Association, a volunteer group known as ‘Designing Women’, President of the Peterborough Photographic Society and a board member for the SPARK Photo Festival.
My work has been shown in local restaurants, Elmhirst’s Resort, the Kawartha Tourism Centre, the Ganaraska Art and Framing Shop, the John M. Parrot Gallery, the Square Foot Show at the Port Hope Jazz Festival, Kawartha Artist Studio and Gallery, Warkworth Juried Art Shows, Fairhaven Home, Nelms Opticians, Trent Hills Library, and gift shops. In the fall of 2011, I held a two day personal studio tour at my home and am now planning another one this spring.
At the Long Lunch Juried Art show in 2010, one of my pieces placed second. I also received Best of Photography 2013 for the Maple Syrup Festival in Warkworth and participated in the First and Second, Fourth and Fifth SPARK Photo Festival as a solo exhibitor. In 2019 once again, I will have a solo exhibit at Elmhirst’s Resort in the Keene area.
In 2016, I had the honour of receiving two awards from the County of Peterborough and Otonabee South Monaghan for ‘Leadership in Arts and Culture’
For the year 2018 and 2019, I acted as curator and featured many local photographers each month at Elmhirst’s Resort in Keene, Ontario
