Born in 1962 in California, moved to Norway when she was six. Works and lives in Oslo with her family. She is a self-taught photographer who has been represented by Gallery Ramfjord in Oslo and has exhibited internationally. She now works independently on her own personal projects. About her works she says:

"In my photographic expression and concept, I search for treasures in the ordinary, invisible at first sight and then discovered and carefully created into something new. I am attracted to colors, shapes, silhouettes and dirty or wet windows. With the layers I find a connection, harmony between elements not normally acting together. All layers melt together in the camera and what you see is what I composed there and then, like a music score. My dogma is not manipulating my images in any way. 

On a personal point of view, and in the title of project "Color Me Softly", there is a me involved. I can see my outline anonymously there but still a part of a larger whole.
