While doing three mentorship years with Alison and Sue, I discovered that I love: doing projects, working in abstract, doing architectural work, and finally, that I love color. During those three years, I began to work on a Quaker Meetinghouse project and a set of Marine Hospital photographs. Since then, I have worked on my Miami Vibe photos. Most recently, I am developing some photos which were done in North Dakota abandoned farmhouses. I’ve been in group and individual shows, and been in online websites and in publications. All of this work incorporates everything I learned during my tenure with Alison and Sue. 

I've had five solo exhibits of my photography, and have been part of 10 group exhibits, including the recent Visual Conversations exhibit with six other women from the Mentorship program.

My photography has been featured in magazine articles, including Yankee, Friends Journal, and MV Arts & Ideas.
 

My experience with the Mentorship:
I highly recommend the Mentorship given by Alison and Sue. My photography has grown by leaps and bounds under their guidance. Even more important to me has been my growing confidence in my own artistic voice coupled with the knowledge of what to do with that voice. Alison and Sue have a wonderful capacity to work with a group of people with a wide variety of expertise, and a wide variety of artistic expression. They have worked with each person “where they are” and taken each person to a whole new level. It has been such a great year, I could not bear the thought of working without Alison and Sue, so I signed up for another year!
