Hi! I’m a nature, landscape and macro photographer and photoblogger based in the beautiful city of Victoria on the Pacific Coast of Canada. There is so much that inspires my lens here - ocean, mountains, sunrises, tall mossy forests, beautiful gardens, and great homegrown produce. I love all of it, and it never gets old. I opened up the An Inspired Lens Etsy shop to share my images with you as fine art prints, greeting cards, and calendars.

Right now I’m a one woman show in running my home business while my husband cheers me on. I’ve had to learn to do all the admin and marketing work myself. I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to make a business out of doing what I most love - although selling art is not for the faint hearted! Essentially what keeps me going is the desire to let my images speak to you – to say whatever you may need to hear today. I trust that they will bring you life, joy, beauty, hope, wonder, challenge, contemplation, encouragement, and inspiration.

You can keep up with what is currently inspiring me at my photoblog here:
