My family once knew me as someone who was “camera challenged” (in fact, my husband would buy me a new camera and tell me that all I had to do was “push a button”!) – a situation which I vowed to overcome someday. I don’t know if I will ever be all the way “there” , however I am thoroughly enjoying the process along the way.
I appreciate art & beauty in all forms, and as a former painter and sketch artist, have replaced my brush and pencil with my trusty camera.
I am obsessed with getting an image to reflect what I see in my minds eye, and also with finding moments in time where even the mundane is momentarily beautiful.
In 2012, out of the blue, I started taking pictures of vintage cars, and have not been able to stop since. There is something about a gleaming or even a well-used treasure from the past that gets my sense of aesthetics itching to capture a piece of it.
Even though making images of vintage vehicles is a favorite subject, I have many other areas of photographic interest as well, such as beaches, boats, and basically anything that catches my eye!
As a side note: I have a parallel interest in writing, and own 2 ecommerce stores online, as well as my Etsy photography site. My husband and I are classic/vintage car owners – we currently have a 1968 Cougar, a 1970 Chevelle, and a 1975 Ford pickup truck. We sold our 1946 Ford, from which I will be adding a few images to my Etsy store. All of our vehicles are in various stages of restoration & repair – none are finished. We are both looking forward to the day when one is! We also love to spend our summer weekends attending local car shows, and our car club (First Fifty Auto Club of Minnesota) had a very successful show ourselves in 2012.
All that being said…All of my images are copyrighted, and they may not be used without my permission.
