In 1999 I found Anderson Island while riding my bicycle in Steilacoom, hopped on the ferry and rode around and fell in love. The following year I purchased my home and have enjoyed the beauty and peace of this island ever since. My interest in photography was inspired because of my limited eyesight, macro photography expanded my world. I am drawn to intense colors, reflections and high contrast landscapes that highlight the beauty of nature. My goal is to retire from real estate in 2019 and dive into photography full-time and develop my passion.
