I'm a wife a mother and a nature, wildlife and travel photographer. Most of my photographs are taken along the back roads and wooded trails of the Southern Wisconsin and Northern Illinois borders, I also make photographic expeditions to other parts of the Country and World. I photograph what I love and whatever I find beautiful through my lens.



I have always had a love and appreciation for photography since I was in my late teens. It all started with my grandfather and his love for photography. My life would not be the same without it. Photography to me starts in the mind and with your eye.


Photography shows the beauty of our planet earth. I have my vision and my photographic eye in order to bring the beauty of earthscapes to light. It can inspire people and make them dream of that place and that moment in time. What I captured is forever in that moment and might not be there tomorrow. Little moments in life inspire and then become art. I hope you feel that way too!


I am a local award winning photographer.

Directions For Ordering Prints


All prints are done on Fuji crystal archival professional photographic paper with the finest archival inks available. All of my prints are made individually to order from a professional printing company that has been in business since 1976. . If you would like a size that you don't see available, or if you don't want to order through the website directly, you can email me at wrus@wi.rr.com with your request. Many images can be printed much bigger than the largest size I have listed.


To purchase a print, just click on the image thumbnail that you would like. (The larger version will appear in the center). Next, put your mouse over the buy button and it will give you three options. Choose “Select Product” . This will take you to another page and then you select which size you want. Then select “add to cart” If you're done shopping you can select “add to Cart” this will direct you to a secure Paypal server. (You don't need a Paypal account to purchase). Taxes and shipping will be calculated with your order. (Special Orders for sizes not on my website will be charged when I know the size you're interested in.)


I recommend having your print professionally matted and framed with archival quality materials. Also, if you are out of the country and would like to order a print, send me an email with the specifics and if it is a possibility I'll let you know about shipping costs. I will send you a Palpal invoice directly.

Nikon D800 D300s * Prints Fuji Chrystal Archival professional paper, canvas or textured art paper - Because of the 1.5x crop factor with my Nikon digital camera verses a 35mm format, I am not always able to print photographs that are cropped too much in camera. This can only be determined when I upload them to my Digital House out of North Carolina. I will let you know ahead of time what sizes I will be able to print without losing the picture to the cropping.
