Thank you for supporting local art!

In 2004, I began selling my photography in a variety of Dr.'s offices in upstate NY with a focus on scenic landscapes throughout the Hudson Valley.
After relocating to San Diego in 2012 - I gravitated toward beach scenes, shoreline stones and wavescapes. 

Over the past 8 years, it's been a true honor to have delivered hundreds of images on print, wall art & greeting cards gaining lifelong friendships along the way.

When Covid entered our lives in 2020 - my Greeting Card orders soared - I am so thankful to have delivered 2,800+ cards to date

thank you to all of my customers!
