‘HER VOICE, WHICH I KNOW SO WELL’ This photographic installation uses the image of my mother and sister.

Evoking the space it lives in. An appearance of a figure. People crowd around, with their cameras and eyes. Hands reach out into the world and feels a bit of grace, while lost in the deep abyss.
In September last year, I visited my daughter, who is now living in Norway with her now Norwegian fiancé. My daughter and I spent an amazing 3 weeks sighseeing around the south part of Iceland, and then up the north west part of Norway, to the Senja/Lofoten regions.

I have always loved the skyline in Colorado during sunset hours, especially since being single.

The Art of Teaching Art
There are many photos that take your breath away. This happens to be one of them for me. Sometimes, it becomes impossible for a camera to see what you see. And sometimes, it becomes impossible for others to do the same. Just like a camera, we have our own lenses, our own points of view, and our own visions of what we hope others can capture by the photos we present.
