Who am I

Well... let's see if you can get to know me better.
I am the daughter of a now retired Canadian Military Service Member. I was born in Halifax, Nova Scotia, but grew up all across this great country of ours. I also had the chance to experience life in other countries that my father was stationed in, but the best days of my life were the summers that I spent on a little island, Cape Sable Island, Nova Scotia, with my grandparents. (Site done by yours truly)
I have come full circle now, and for the last 5 years I have been living in Halifax, Nova Scotia. As you can see from my photos, I love to explore this beautiful province, and see what's at the end of the road, although, all roads I travel on are not all paved.


Photography has always been my passion. Back in the day of film, I would save my allowance, baby-sit, mow lawns, shovel snow... anything to make money to buy film, develop film, buy cameras, just to satisfy my passion. My children claimed they never knew what their mother looked like without a camera in front of her face...and I am now getting that same complaint from my granddaughter.
Although, self taught, I love to create art using all the tools of the trade, including, as people have told me, my unique eye for lighting and colour.

Where you can find me

All year - Most Saturday mornings you will find me at the Historic Farmers Market at the Alexander Keith's Brewery, 1496 Lower Water Street, Halifax from 7 a.m. - 1 p.m. Please contact me to verify that we will be at the Market on the day you plan to visit.

May 1st - Oct. 31st, Weather permitting on the weekends, you will find me on the Halifax Waterfront, by the big blue wave on Sackville landing.
If you find yourself at any of these locations, feel free to come and say hi, and browse... I love meeting and talking with new people.

Web Dezign

Although I have enjoyed creating several web pages myself, my son Tim now takes the lead in web site dezign and web application development using the ColdFusion programming language. Tim studied Digital Media Design at the International Academy of Design in 1998 - 1999 in Toronto. In 2001 Tim studied ColdFusion at Northern Elements in Mississauga (just outside of Toronto). For several years Tim worked for Public Works & Government Services Canada (PWGSC) as a Web and Multi Media Designer creating a wide variety of web sites, videos, animations, and presentations. After taking a break from the digital world, Tim has gotten back into web dezign and created this site. Whose site would be better to start with than his mothers? I'm sure more sites will be added to the portfolio page soon.
