After nearly 20 years of taking pictures and making photographs, in the summer of 2010 I found a new beginning with the study and practice of Miksang contemplative photography. Having completed the course of study developed by the Miksang Institute along with Teacher Training in 2014 and 2017, I am currently certified to teach “Making Contact” on behalf of the Institute.
I would like to thank the people who have had, and are having, a profound influence on this voyage of discovery through photography:
- My Miksang teachers Michael Wood and Julie DuBose
- Roland Vögtli, who pointed me toward Miksang
- Freeman Patterson and André Gallant, who re-ignited my passion for photography after a long hiatus—and made me feel comfortable with my little bridge camera and eight ounce tripod in a workshop of serious DSLR users!
- Craig Tanner, Marti Jeffers, and The Mindful Eye Community, for nurturing that passion
- My mother and sisters, who are each artists in their own right; my father, who is deeply moved by art
- And most of all my husband, for his unconditional support all along the way.
With heartfelt gratitude.
Your flowers are beautiful! I love the color and the life. My favorite flower picture on my blog is called ‘Color’ because of the bright red. Thanks for your beatiful blog!

Thank *you* for your visit and feedback, Ashley. I see you’ve joined TME, and look forward to viewing more of your work there!
It is lovely to see your work April. I particularly like the feeling I get from the tree with the crab apples on the ground.
Thank you, Holly, for taking the time to visit and comment! The image you mention was seen in Loyola Park, and is one of my favorites, too.
