Resisting Change


Matted print (18×24”) silver metal frame, white mat

This image resulted from a walkabout around a school with a daycare attached. The outdoor play area was fenced & the gate securely locked, but it was also October and most of the maple leaves had fallen. This scene immediately spoke to me about the beauty of the change of seasons and yet the locked gate represented how thoroughly we sometimes resist change – locking out the beauty and the possibilities that are usually on the other side once we embrace change.

In my life there have been many unanticipated changes and paths I had not wished to walk down but I chose to step up to each challenge, knowing each as an opportunity for growth.
So, my message is this: Do not fear change – it is beautiful on the other side.


I am a visual artist and educator living in Rosedale with 3 dogs & one cat.  To express my creativity, I use photography. Consequently, I belong to several local artists’ and photography groups. These include the Chilliwack Visual Artists Association, since 2009 and the Abbotsford Photo Arts Club since 1996.

I teach entry level photography at the Chilliwack Cultural Center. In the summer, I co-ordinate the photography team for the Harrison Festival of the Arts.

My work has been displayed many places in the Fraser Valley. The O’Connor Art Gallery, Chilliwack Museum, the Royal Hotel, the Chilliwack Regional District office and the Chilliwack Art Room. In Abbotsford, the Kariton House Gallery and the Art & Wine Walk. As well as the Mission Art Gallery and Harrison Festival of the Arts

I have been published internationally in calendars, (Prospera Credit Union & Multi-faith). And magazines (Bluegrass North).

My fine art images are inspired by the world before me. Allowing me to see the marvelous in the mundane, the magic in a moment. Then share my vision with the viewer.

Above all, a passion for portraiture emerged when I recognized a desire to reveal their own personal ‘beauty’. Certainly, to embrace and celebrate the amazing person they are, at any age!  The portraits I create are not just about a pretty face and nice lighting. Your shoot should reflect your story, to show you as you are, or how you wish to be!

Although all of images are color compatible for viewing online, most computer monitors vary in their color configurations. The images that you see may not have accurate color representation.
