Artist's Statement

I have come a long way from the days of a Kodak Dura Flex camera, with a large,side-attached flash hood, non-reusable bulbs with 12 count negative film; to what amounts to the thousands of digital images stored on our hard drives capabilities of today.  I have chosen not to limit what I take photos of.  I have allowed my mood, my interest, and my passion to drive my camera lenses in capturing events and festivals, abstracts, nature and wildlife, still photography or landscapes.  

Having lived my entire life in Northeast Wisconsin, I have spent and will continue to spend a lot of time photographing the beautiful multidimensional, seasonally-driven state.  My camera has always been and will continue to be one of my best friends.  And in most recent years it has brought new life and fresh sight to my eyes and I don't want to miss a thing!  Three years agomy husband Roy joined me in pursuit of capturing the best of Wisconsin, in photography.  It has been our goal to create a retirement business just in time for him to “relax and enjoy” and for us to spend more time together doing our favorite things…traveling and shooting, ever expanding our circle of travels even wider.  We want you to know each of our images is the result of many patient hours spent in the field observing wildlife or at events, or sometimes exploration, learning,feeling, and seeing "new" things whether we are right in our own backyard or traveling.  It is an exciting time in photography, and we fully embrace the power of being able to adjust the digital raw camera data into works of art with the detail, authenticity, and direct connection to the subject matter of choice, that comes with photography. It is very important to us that our art is indeed photographic because, it means it is in fact realevents that we experienced in real places, with real people, or have discovered in the natural beauty of this state.  We do our best to capture our photographs in traditional single exposures. In every case, we strive to make our art honest to the original scene, with modest contrast and saturation adjustments for aesthetic considerations.  We hope some of our images will inspire you to get outdoors and explore and to reconnect with nature!  We invite you to peruse our website, blog, or Facebook shops or look for images published in the Capture Wisconsin Book II, Capture Door County (book), Our Wisconsin:  Its Beauty….Its Bounty…..Its People (book) and current issues of Our Wisconsin Magazine, Journey Through Wisconsin Magazine and Door County’s Travel Brochures.  If you have further questions,please do not hesitate to contact us.
