Jak's Profile

About

Once upon a time there was a little girl who wanted to go to 4-H camp. She was so excited to be off on her first big adventure away from home. Her mother gave her a little Brownie Hawkeye box camera to take with her, and when she saw that she could capture her world from her perspective on little sheets of paper – well – she fell in love.

Even now, forty-three years later, her love affair with her camera is still going strong.

The little girl’s name was Jackie, but nowadays most everyone just calls her “Jak”.

Jak has traveled over most of the United States and has lived in Kentucky, Florida, Ohio (twice), Oregon and Arizona (twice). Her dream is to retire, live in a motorhome & travel around the country taking pictures.

The little girl’s name was Jackie, but nowadays most everyone just calls her “Jak”.

Jak has traveled over most of the United States and has lived in Kentucky, Florida, Ohio (twice), Oregon and Arizona (twice). Her dream is to retire, live in a motorhome & travel around the country taking pictures.

In the summer of 2012 she was able to take a grand road trip from Ohio to Arizona and spent most of that trip cruising along old Route 66. Right now she’s planning out where her next road trip will take her.

Jak loves animals and has a Boxer named Duke, a Jack Russell Terrier named Sparky and a Chihuahua named Pepper. All of her dogs were rescued from a life of homelessness and Jak donates her time taking pictures of homeless pets with the hope that her pictures will help them find loving forever homes.

Although I am now 54 years old, I am still that same little girl who gets all excited about the next snap of the shutter. I hope you enjoy looking at my work as much as I enjoy making it.

CARPE DIEM!

****************ONE IMPORTANT NOTE****************
All of my prints are made with white borders. There are two reasons for this. First is because the actual image is often not the same shape as a standard print size. Leaving white borders ensures that none of the image is cropped off. Second, the outer size of the paper will fit into standard frames that can be bought off of the shelf. Having a white border means you don't have to have a custom frame made and that your print can be centered in the cut of a standard mat (although having a mat custom cut will make it fit the image more closely). Please do take the time to read through the item descriptions and my policy page. There is some important information contained there.
