Anita has always enjoyed being outdoors, whether it be watching a sunset, walking through a forest, or relaxing on a beach.  Her passion for travel has inspired many remarkable and compelling photographs taken in the Caribbean, in several countries of Europe, and in many American states and Canadian provinces.

A prolific composer of over 150 pieces for piano and other instruments, and an excellent reviewer of her many journeys, Anita has found, in photography, yet another outlet for her creativity and imagination.  She is excited to be able to share, through her digital imagery, her enthusiasm for the seasons of life and nature.

Anita is a member of the Maple Run Tour, Crown and Pumpkin Studio Tour, Nepean Fine Arts League (NFAL), Arts Carleton Place, and Capital Artisans Guild.

Anita is devoted to her husband Bill, to her two daughters Valerie and Elisabeth, her extended family, her friends, her students, her teachers, and to God.  She has a broad range of interests and activities:  she has a Bachelor of Music from the University of Ottawa, an ARCT in both teaching and performance, and has been teaching piano for over 40 years.  She plays competitive scrabble, and she proudly holds a Third Degree Black Belt in TaeKwon-Do.

“It is my hope that these photographs will capture the beauty and majesty of the natural world and that these pictures will encourage the preservation of our wildlife and ecology.”
