Hi my name is Betty, I live and create in my home studio located in Southern NH along side my Architect husband of 27 years, and our three highly spoiled heal chewing Chihuahuas who you’d just love to boot across the street, Chachi, Molly, and their son Skip. They light up every second of my day!

As a self-taught traditional artist, I exhibited my artwork throughout New England for many years holding membership with several art guilds.The advent of the internet and a curious obsession with the computer in 1996, along with my camera and Adobe Photoshop software soon replaced my art supplies, allowing me to traverse a completely new dimension to my work – a new creative outlet without the messy clean up–occasionally, I still enjoy getting my hands messy.

My life passion is in photography and writing. It is being present in simple moments affected by beauty in the little gems of daily life and travels that embodies my soul. A simple gift many unfortunately take for granted each morning when we rise.

I shoot with a Canon EOS 30D Digital camera, Polaroid SX-70, Polaroid Sun600 LMS, and my i-Phone.
