About me

Industry Arts
Occupation Photographer
Location Kansas City, Missouri, United States
Introduction I grew up in Kentucky, where it seems I was always taking pictures. I moved to Madison, Wisconsin after high school and got a BA in Communication Arts and a Master's degree in Photography/Graphic Design. Shortly after relocating to Kansas City in 1980 with my husband, Eddie, I opened the Baker Gallery, specializing in the exhibition and sale of 20th century fine art photography, and I had two children, Abbie and Max. At that point I made a conscious decision to move my own image-making to the back burner. Fourteen years later, on my fortieth birthday, I decided to start making photographs again and dusted off my Hasselblad to do just that. Now 61, I have completed several bodies of photographic work which have been exhibited and published on a national level. Shortly after my return from a 2006 trip to east Africa, I established a non-profit to assist Ugandan children who are orphaned due to HIV/AIDS and civil war. I started this blog to keep friends and family informed of my experiences on that first trip to Uganda. Nine trips later, the blog has taken many twists and turns, but it continues to serve as a way for me to talk about my life and my work. Welcome!
