I've been interested in photography since I was a child. My first camera was a Brownie box camera, remember those? I see everything as a potential photograph. I guess I look at life with an artist's eye. I did wedding photography for about 12 years and retired in 2003. I took Black and white photography at Gavilan College in Gilroy, CA. I live in Northern CA with my husband and granddaughter. I have 2 children, Tracy and Dustin. I have 4 grandchildren ranging in age from 8 to 21. Our son Dustin went to be with the Lord in 2003 at the young age of 33. My husband Ralph and I have been married since 1970. I was born and raised in Minnesota and moved to California in 1970 where we have lived ever since.
