||When I was just 16 years old, I decided to become a professional fine art photographer. I followed my dream through education (BFA in photography), Worked in many jobs as a photographer, teacher of photography, scientific & medical photographer, and started my own fine art photography business: Creativreimage. I have always been interested in issues of self esteem and body image and this was/is reflected in my work. My work has been published, exhibited, & collected worldwide. i have worked on two films for Canada concerning body image. and been a presented at national eating disorder conferences. Photography has been my profession and my passion. I am interested in showing the beauty and vitality of people who are not usually considered in many societies as powerful. My themes have included aging & vitality, disability & sexuality, gender. I am interested in creating a new visual language concerning body image and self-esteem. My fight is against the medical/diet industry which makes billions of dollars a year on keeping people (particularly women) insecure about their bodies, beauty, and self-worth. I have been photographing for many decades.
