I am originally from Michigan and along with my husband, Steve, have lived in Illinois, California, Massachusetts and Germany. Presently, I’m a retired microbiologist living in Baileys Harbor, Wisconsin. My interest in photography began many years ago when I took a darkroom class developing black and white photos while living in Monterey, California. Subsequently, I set up my own black and while darkroom in my home and took independent photography classes at a local community college in Illinois. I have also taken various drawing, watercolor and photography classes at the Peninsula School of Art in Fish Creek and attended a photographic workshop in Ireland.
