has been in the arts since early childhood first as a portrait
sketch artist, then as a singer/actress and then as a costume
designer for TV and Movies. She was head of wardrobe for
CBS in the mid-70's during the Cher and Carol Burnette era
before she ran off to India to join the Rajneesh Commune.
She was deeply impacted by this very unconventional spiritual
master whose purpose was to create controversy and untie
the apron strings of your mind. His many meditations were
designed to set you free from dualistic belief systems and
sexual inhibitions so you could flow naturally into your
own unique authenticity.
re-entering mainstream America again, she took up residence
in Laguna Beach and tried many creative pursuits including
designing, making and selling ceramic jewelry, creating
an alternative art Festival called "Starfair Visionary Arts"
next to the Sawdust Festival in Laguna and then taking up
photography as an art. She was juried into the famous Festival
of Arts with her edgy hand painted black and white photography
in 1996 and 1997 after which she began her professional
career as one of Laguna Beach's highly respected portrait
photographers. After 9 years of photographing families and
children in her studio and at the beach and turning 63,
she began to dream of retirement. Then suddenly, a new vision
came to her and she began photographing women dressed as
Goddesses in nature and the results inspired her to make
her primary purpose in life the emergence of the Divine
Feminine through her photography.
