Being a native Californian, the Pacific Ocean greatly influences my creativity. Nature provides the bulk of my subject matter, photographing seabirds and their environment. I’ve spent a great deal of time focusing on gulls in flight, particularly their anatomy and mechanics. I’m drawn to the details of their wings and feathers, specifically the symmetry of straight lines, parallel lines, and the overall geometry.

After receiving a B.A. in Art from San Diego State University, I briefly worked as a freelance photographer. Then my life took an unexpected turn - I became a standup comedienne, I performed across the country and beyond. In the ’90’s, I also appeared on major television networks. I now feel happiest behind the camera, not in front of it.
