"I started photographing my domestic world and writing not just about what I had made,
but why I made it, examining the thoughts that accompany creativity and the act of making."

Remembering With Thanks
Although my husband, Louis, did not die in combat, his life was greatly impacted by the seven years he served in the USA Navy. That impact helps me to appreciate even more the service of those in the military who have given their lives to help protect and promote freedom and peace.
Today, on Memorial Day, I am remembering with thanks those who gave their lives, those who served, and I am remembering with thanks those who are serving in the military, like my young, great-nephew, Matthew, who is serving in Afghanistan.
