    In Houston, Texas where I was born and reared, I studied dance and interior design, and put that education to use as a dance instructor and designer for a number of years. Then one trip to Northern California as a young woman with a big camera riding on the back of a Kawasaki motorcycle was all it took to get me to move.

    Photography had been my passion since 1975 which became a part-time business in 1991, full time in 2004.  Yet in 1994 the call of the dolphins and whales came so loudly to me that underwater photography of marine mammals promised to supply the thrill that gives me life.  Subjects, some of them doing their best to communicate back with vocalization, eye contact and behavior.



     True stories of interspecies communication with dolphins and whales are in a collection called "Encounters With Hearts of the Sea"  These stories and the accompanying dolphin and whale images have been published in several books, magazines, online magazines, and videos.
