Wife, mom (of two adult kids), photographer, quilter, knitter, cat lover, foodie and retired. I am originally from Lombard, Illinois. I now reside in the Grand Rapids, MI area.


I love photographing nature, street photography, portrait, animals, food, my cats and well...just about anything. I am a member of the Grand Rapids Camera Club.
