I started making pictures with my Mother’s camera when I was quite young (and small), in post-war Germany – black and white, of course. Once in Canada, I got a Brownie and eventually switched to colour prints then slides. I took photography in high school and even became the president of the camera club. But my main love was painting.
Now, Photography is my hobby, my passion and my way of managing stress; photography gets me into nature, into the company of like-minded individuals and to other parts of the world. To put it another way: photography is my addiction (a lot less expensive now with digital!).
I love the adventure of following my impulses to different parts of the Lower Mainland, BC, Canada, North America and the World to make my photographs.
I enjoy sharing my hobby, techniques and impression of the world with other people: through teaching, exhibitions, salons, competitions, shows, presentations and the production of painterly prints as, well as greeting cards.
