MaryAnn’s early years were spent in pre WWII Germany surrounded by family and friends, many of whom were gifted writers and musicians. She won her first award at a juried competition in Marin County, CA, and for many years had a thriving business traveling to horse shows and ranches up and down the west coast taking photographs. The Quarter Horse Journal published many of those images. During those years she kept a darkroom and processed her own film. An interest in aerial photography led her to obtain a pilot’s license, and she spent many flights photographing both as a pilot and as a passenger. In reaction to these flights far above the earth, she felt the need to get closer to the small things in nature and “I believe it was during this time that my love for macro photography evolved.” After pursuing a Ph.D. in psychology and a later career in handwriting forensics she retired and now devotes most of her time to photography. “A long life affords many opportunities for learning, exploring and photographing.”
