One of my favorite World Music groups performed on Maui last week at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center to a nearly full house. Ladysmith Black Mambazo showed off their high steps (complete with red socks!) to the sounds of smooth voices from South Africa. Ladysmith beacame even more famous with the partnership with Paul Simon on his Graceland album a few years ago. The group was founded over 40 years ago in South Africa and has performed all over the world This was their third performance on Maui at the Maui Arts and Cultural Center. And now to Elton John next month!
I love what I do! I have the wonderful opportunity to capture people, places and things at their best every day I go to work. I get invited to have the unique opportunity to be part of milestones in people’s lives like weddings, pregnancy, newborns babies and time with family. I consider it an honor when someone likes my work and asks me to be part of an important day in their lives. I get to do what I love, people look their best and we all have fun. What’s better than that? Photography is like music to me-different notes, instruments and elements all come together at the right time to create amazing works of art. My job as a photographer is about passion meeting vision and having great clients as my subjects!
My images are featured in the Te Papa Museum of New Zealand, Faces of Hawaii 2009 book and published in Global Traveler USA magazine, Maui Arts and Cultural Center’s magazines, Living Maui Magazine, the Maui News, Kauai Traveler magazine and Maui No Ka Oi magazine. I also teach digital photography at the Hui No'eau Visual Arts Center on Maui.
My husband and I currently enjoy island life on Maui.
