Throughout our careers, we will probably wear several hats and I’m no exception. The one underlying theme in mine has been the need to create. And while those hats have changed, it wasn’t due to fashion, but more of a need to express myself in different ways.
Before turning to writing, I worked as a photographer. My work has been featured in such publications as the New York Times, New Beauty magazine, Yankee magazine, Delaware Today, and the Sun magazine and has been exhibited in numerous galleries, collections, and museums.
Moving from photography to writing was not much of a jump as I was an award-winning copywriter during my time in advertising. That transition was realized by the publication of my book Arn? Narn. It was a marriage of images and words. One benefit of that move was the realization a laptop was a lot lighter than a bagful of cameras.
My latest book, A Coward’s Guide to Living is now available through Amazon.
On this website is an example of my work in both fields. From the Arn? Narn. blog, to the Thistle and Bee stories of women working to escape the street, and to the Old Friends, Like Wine portrait series, I’ve tried to live into what the photographer W. Eugene Smith sought in his work, Let Truth Be The Prejudice.
