Art for the Heart...

My approach to photography has evolved from the traditional art to what is known as contemplative photography. Contemplative photography allows me to "practice mindfulness". My hope is that my art will be imbued with the same sense of wonder and joy I feel as I approach my photography with awe and respect.

Two of my favorite books are The Little Book of Contemplative Photography: Seeing with wonder, respect and humility by Howard Zehr and Photography And the Art of Seeing: A Visual Perception Workshop for Film and Digital Photography by Freeman Patterson.

I am also a writer and the author of Star Child: A Mother's Journey Through Grief. I am currently at work on a new book, On Wings of Angels: Transcending Grief and Loss. I plan to use many of my angel photographs in this new work. I am a lover of Rumi poetry and am also a Reiki Master practitioner.
