My heart first opened to photography when I attended a workshop at my home with Robert Leverant, author of Zen and the Art of Photography. We focused on the inner stillness needed to be present in the subtle, magic moment when the image is both captured and set free to live on.

This experience led me to study black-and-white photography at San Miguel, Mexico, and Berkeley, California. In 1979, my current yoga practice began and I became aware of light and shadow as structural elements, as alive, as the material world they shape.

Meditation has been my greatest teacher. The camera is my good friend, a way of expressing my love for life and all it offers. Through my photos I express my gratitude. In our present-day focus on speed and multi-tasking, there is a tendency to lose oneself. Today the contemplation of beauty is more important than ever.

My work "Welcome the Light" is an invitation to stop, look, and experience the wonder of nature, for that connects us to the world around us and to our deeper self. For that moment we can feel the delicious gift of life.
