I am a fine art photographer in Venice, Florida with a background in art education. I am working with renowned French photographer Serge Ramelli as an ambassador in his PhotoSerge Academy, assisting him in teaching photography online to students from around the world. My work is in Venice Island Gallery at 100A West Venice Avenue in Venice, Florida.
Art and photography have always been my passion. Drawing, painting, colors, and travel excite me. In college I majored in art education, receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree, taught elementary art in Pennsylvania for 9 years, then moved to Florida.
My portfolio includes landscapes and architecture in Florida, Europe, and Asia. I enhance light, shadows, and color when editing to create powerful, dramatic, and peaceful images. Serenity and those "magic moments" that touch deep into the soul... my images show the world as a beautiful place to live and a wonderful place to explore.
My favorite things to capture are historical and tropical places, pink flamingos, cows, trees, gardens, and old buildings with charm. I like to give my photos a painterly look while others I'll give dramatic, bold lighting.
My photos have received many awards locally and internationally. I have had photos displayed at the King Center Gallery at Brevard College and at the Vero Beach Museum of Art. My photos have been published in the Vero Beach Magazine, on the cover of Florida Currents and South County Healthy Living magazines, and in my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry. I have also had six images featured in a webinar series by Serge Ramelli, who is my mentor and has inspired the artistry of my photography.
I illustrated and designed the cover for my husband's book, "Vagabonds in France" by Michael A. Barry, a story about our unexpected adventure to Europe. We put everything in storage and left with no return date or home to come back to. We sailed across the Atlantic to Portugal and Spain, then traveled to the French Riviera and Provence, with a month in Paris. Readers say they feel they are right there with us on the journey and laugh out loud. The book is available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle here.
