Being an accidental International model for 10 years gave me the International knowledge
in the fashion photography business that I craved. It was like getting paid to go to the university of your dreams.
It was during my last 4 month contract in Japan and almost 10 years of working in front of the camera, I decided it was now
the time to turn my "secret" education from in front to behind the camera, and my dream of shooting fashion...age 28.
Since then, Fashion and celebrity assignments have brought me all over the world ... shooting in the Orient, the Caribbean, Africa,
many U.S. locations including NYC, Chicago, Detroit, Florida and all throughout my beautiful country, Canada.
Fashion and beauty layouts have featured works by designers Christian Dior, Valentino, Versace, Chanel, Prada, Ralph Lauren,
Hermes, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Alexander McQueen, Gucci, Canada's "Project Runway's" Lucian Matis ...
Photographs of Celebrities and Political Leaders for magazine covers include CBC's "Little Mosque on the Prairie" star Sitara Hewitt,
CTV's eTalk hosts Ben Mulroney and Tanya Kim, Y&R's Tonya Lee Williams and Melody Thomas Scott,
Gloria Rueben of ER, CSI and 1-800-MISSING, CBC's "Sophie" star Natalie Brown,
Author Lawrence Hill, Michael "Pinball" and Diane Lee Clemons, Supermodel Daria Werbowy,
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Governor General Michaella Jean, Premier of Alberta Jason Kenney, The Honorable Michael Lee Chin ...
I've had the privilege to travel the world on assignments to meet and photograph many incredible individuals
who have made a difference in our world.
After 40 years of an incredible journey, I now reside in Amherstburg, ON
with my loving husband, dog, leopard gecko
and my Underwater Studio.
