I have had a lifelong interest in color, form and design that led to exploring photography as the medium of my artistic vision in 1995. Through a variety of training courses, including a particularly influential workshop with David Alan Harvey, I began to develop a signature viewpoint that is exemplified most in my City Reflections Project and, recently, in my Elements series.

I would have to say that my work is best characterized as an intense meditation, which abandons the larger perspective for the smaller, more intimate scene. This style, whether in my interpretive landscape work or in my exploration of the urban cityscape, is quite evident. The images are often close up and tend to share an abstract interpretation with a literal one. The combination of abstraction and reality remains in my current work and is now often infused with a dream-like or a hyper-realistic quality.

Images from the City Reflections Project were selected for exhibit at the 2012 Modesto International Architecture Festival. I have had the honor of being published in three internationally acclaimed online photography magazines including LensWork Extended #106, Lenscratch (featured photographer, December 15, 2013), and on the cover page of LensCulture. In November 2013, I received a Grand Prix Juror of Merit Award for Rooftop Dream in the International Fine Art Competition in Paris.

Twenty-fourteen was a very interesting year. The City Reflections portfolio garnered more international recognition with feature articles in La boite verte (France), Fubiz (France), Plataforma Urbana (Chile), ArchDaily (Mexico, Brazil), and Cosas de Arquitectos (Spain) among others. In August I was interviewed and published in the printed South Korean magazine Photo+ and I also licensed six images to the Lumas gallery in Berlin to sell and display my work throughout their 38 European galleries. At the end of the year I was featured in the arts and architecture quarterly printed magazine A + E (Morocco).

Nationally, images from my City Reflection Project were exhibited in a group show at the Panopticon fine art photography gallery in Boston, MA for the summer of 2014. In November of 2014, Bricks And Mirrors was selected for the 2015 International Juried Exhibition at the Center for Photographic Art, Carmel, CA.

In February 2015, the Crocker Art Museum in Sacramento, CA acquired Doorway To The Daily Diary for their permanent collection.

My work can be found on the Stone Photography website and at the Stone Photography Studio, both of which I share with my husband Rob Stone. I have had award-winning images selected for multiple juried shows in Northern California, including Viewpoint Photographic Art Center, The Blue Line Gallery and Gallery 1855 (solo show, December 2014).

I am represented by Lumas (Berlin, DE), Art Consulting Services (Sacramento, CA), DSA Fine Arts (Beacon, NY), Kinzelman Art Consulting (Houston, TX), DAC Art Consulting (Atlanta, GA), and ICArt (Miami, FL).
