I have enjoyed the out-of-doors since childhood. My family vacationed in state parks and cottages along the great lakes and inland lakes of Michigan and since then I’ve made my home in Maine, Long Island (NY) and North Carolina. In all of these places, and in travels to Canada, Mexico, New Zealand and South Korea, I’ve found incredible beauty and always have an eye out for unusual patterns in nature.
My husband, Jerry Heiser, shares my love for artistic expression. Since receiving his dowry (an Olympus 35mm camera) in 1981, I’ve studied Photography Technology at Carteret Community College, nature photography via workshops in Highlands, NC and Munising, MI, and received a North Carolina Arts Council Fellowship for a one-month residency at Vermont Studio Center in 2001.
Currently, I use a Nikon digital camera and teach digital camera workshops. My work may be seen at Handscapes Gallery and Mattie King Davis Gallery in Beaufort, The History Place in Morehead City, the Sea Gypsy Gallery in Emerald Isle, the Village Gallery in Oriental and in various group exhibitions (all in North Carolina.)
