Although from time to time I do take pictures of friends and strangers,
the primary focus of my artistic work is the story of my own immediate
Why my family? My husband Bill and I agreed before we bore them that
the most important thing we would ever do with our lives was to nurture
our children. We determined that the greatest gift we could give our
children was our time. We were very much aware that the early years would
fly by and, before we knew it, they would be out making their own way in
the world. I determined to capture these years on film and to resurrect
them in the darkroom.
I am now documenting the early years of the next generation.
It is my expectation that the images that I am producing will awaken in
you the enduring truth that time spent with children is never wasted. The
bridge by which one generation passes its values to the next is the
relationship between the two.
