My profile on Poets & Writers.
My life’s journey…so far.
I photograph and write about quiet, soulful things: nature, place, a sense of wonder, loss, living forward, being human.
I’ve been shaped by the landscapes where I’ve lived, loved, and travelled. I have midwestern roots, a prairie heart, and a deep seaside soul.
Currently I live in the port city of Victoria on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, filling my senses with west coast beauty.
I’m a lifelong, curious, experiential learner. I’ve taken risks, experimented, given my whole heart to many different professional roles.
I am grateful for the educational support of a 2023 professional development grant from Access Copyright Foundation.
I would like to acknowledge the traditional unceded lands of the Lək̓ʷəŋən (Lekwungen/Songhees) People, where I live, dream, and create. Growing up in Victoria, I never heard the traditional names of the territories. I endeavour now to learn of the Lekwungen/Songhees People’s culture, struggles, and wisdom. I often walk through míqәn (Beacon Hill) where I, too, am “warmed by the sun.”
In offering this land acknowledgment, I affirm the Lekwungen/Songhees People’s history, experiences, spirit, and knowledge.
Be brave, kind, and true.
