I grew up wandering the woods and beaches near my parent’s home in NW Washington. I had a rock collection so extensive it threatened to fall through my closet floor into my brother’s room, and more interesting branches and bugs than would fit on available surfaces. I started taking pictures in high school, saving both space and my mother’s washing machine. I also had a map of Alaska on my wall, and a lifelong dream of living there. I attended the University of Alaska, Fairbanks where I earned a degree in Wildlife Biology. Although I made my career in teaching and later in counseling, I never stopped exploring the unique Alaskan landscape I now call home. It is my privilege to share that with you here.
In the blog, I like to share my explorations and thoughts, along with photos that help tell that story. Many of the photographs are interesting in context, but don’t make great art prints. The illustrated story is what I love to share, while the art prints help me sustain this adventure. I have curated the best photos in the art print galleries for easy searching.
