In 2005, my husband and I, coasted in to Anacortes thinking we would hang out for a year or two. At the time, I wasn’t sure how a big city girl would adjust to a small town. Well adjust I did. After opening up That Photo Shoppe, I started organizing photography workshops and I became involved with the Skagit Valley Camera Club.
At first I had no real interest in taking up photography. My talent and passion was in organizing workshops. I teamed up with photographers and instructors, Dick Garvey, Vince Streano and Tony Locke and after years of watching, learning and absorbing – I found I was hooked and I got my first camera. I am no longer a city girl. I love living in Anacortes.
I love the community, the people and the arts. I am actively involved in the arts, the Anacortes Arts Commission, the Skagit Valley Camera Club and the community in which I live and photograph.
