I photograph Lake Superior from the vantage point of a sailboat. My photography began as a visual diary of summers my husband and I spend sailing in the Lake's remote, northern regions, a stretch of islands, coves and solitary anchorages in both the United States and Canada. The camera served as a tool to capture my experience of this wilderness. As the sailing seasons passed, I saw that in the dark nights away from city lights the Milky Way illuminated the Lake. I began photographing the reflections made by the Milky Way to find the connection of light between night sky and earth. Through the images in this exhibit, the viewer can experience scenes and places seen by few people but which should not go unnoticed.
I learned photography through coursework at the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. For the last several years, I have studied astrophotography under Brad Goldpaint, overall winner of the 2018 Astronomy Photographer of the Year by the Royal Museums of Greenwich, England. Additionally, I learned the art of printing photos from John Gregor, a renowned fine art photographer who lives on the north shore of Lake Superior.
When not sailing on Lake Superior, I make my home in Middleton, WI. There I take photos with a large format film camera and develop/print the photos in my darkroom.
Exhibit is on display at the University Hospital in the J5/1 Cafeteria Corridor on the 1st floor. Parking is available in the hospital ramp for a fee.
