She received her MA in Photography through the University of St. Francis in Ft. Wayne, Indiana.

She is obsessed with the simplest forms of photography (lumen prints, anthotypes, photograms, etc.) but particularly pinhole photography. She makes simple to complex pinhole cameras, using anything from a shoe box to a truck. She is currently working on pinhole images that expose for several months at a time.
