Hello! And Welcome to my Photography blog, Behind the Lens. This web site is a virtual diary of my experiences in photography and digital design.
I have a strong interest in the visual arts ever since I can remember. As a child, I grew up drawing and sketching when I didn’t have my head in a book reading. I attended a highschool for the arts then graduated to university where I focused in psychology and kept my visual arts background as a hobby. A brief acceptance into Ontario College of Art was a joy but the work from two universities simultaneously, was too much and I continued with Psychology. After my post graduate studies in England, I came back home to Canada to become a mother. Five years later with four children, my life and passion focused around them. Art was passed aside as a fragment of my past while I began documenting my childrens’ lives with photography.
My children are growing up now, no longer am I needed on a moment to moment basis for diapers, and sibling disputes. I can even manage to sleep through the night most nights without a small voice somewhere calling me.
As someone who always found technology intriguing, I bring to it my passion for perception and expression of emotion through photography and digital design. While my background is varied, one thing remains constant which is my interest in individuals, whether that be understanding them through the verbal domain, or through artistic mediums when words fail.
The next stage of my life will be to take these interests and talents and apply them to a wider variety of subjects in the unique format of photography and design.
I hope you enjoy the journey documented here.
All the best,
