NATURE AND WILDLIFE PHOTOGRAPHER
I am a Canadian wildlife photographer. Born raised in the North Okanagan community of Enderby, BC. my love of nature started in childhood as I grew up on rural farmland that was flanked by the Shuswap River and towered by the ever changing Enderby Cliffs. I raised my family in Ashton Creek and still resides there with my husband Wayne. Wayne and I built our home in Ashton Creek to overlook the panoramic views of the Shuswap River and Trinity Valley.
My introduction to photography started in 2012 with a “Camera Basics” taught by local photographer Darren Robinson. This stirred up the desire to learn more and led me to famous wildlife photographer, John E Marriott. In February 2013, I took part in one of John’s Wildlife Photo Workshops in Jasper. Capturing elk and rams and stalking a pack of wolves over the ice was a turning point for me. With excitement and passion I continue to pursue wildlife in their natural surroundings.
My photo tour destinations have led me to Jasper, The Great Bear Rain Forest, Nunavut, Central B.C. and this fall I will be photographing Spirit bears on the West Coast of British Columbia.
