Artist bio

For years, I’ve been drawn to art forms that convey my understanding of truth, hope, and the unfathomable grace of Jesus’ shed blood for redemption and restoration of mankind. As a trained pianist, nuance, tone, and structure shape my performance. As a graphic designer, organization, space, and simplicity conduct my message. As a photographer, line, unsung detail, and story give voice to beauty. The seed of photography interest was planted as a child when my father, employed by Eastman Kodak, shared the magic of dark room film development with my brother and me. In 2011, I entered the DSLR world, then developed a fondness for the quiet of a mirrorless camera. More recently I learned the craft of fine art printing and framing. My husband and I have called the greater Birmingham area of Alabama home for a little more than 25 years.


Standing Firm, Proclaiming Peace



Artist Statement

I seek to create photographs that awaken wonder, helping myself and others see ordinary things in unique, beautiful ways and to feel surprise, joy, and hope. In the busyness of life, we can get so overwhelmed, inward-focused, and disenchanted that we do not feel connected to something greater than ourselves. When we can’t see our place in an unfolding story, we are not vibrant contributors to society. However, when we are moved by wonder, ordinary becomes extraordinary and impossible becomes possible.

This particular piece is a collection of photos of church friends, each inhabiting a vastly different landscape from the other. Yet we are all called to be ready, standing firm, well-equipped to face adversity with the message of peace. God takes our ordinary and makes it extraordinary by showing us the way from impossible to possible.

How it fits into contest

As followers of Christ, the One who is bringing together all things in peace, we choose good shoes, those that work best in our daily landscapes. We go out as individuals, but serve as a community with readiness, standing firm against unseen forces and ready to proclaim the gospel of peace.
