Born and raised in Germany, I have been living in the United States since 1983. I live in Upstate N.Y. since 1985.

I am a member of the skete of St. Elizabeth the New Martyr, a monastic community for women in the Russian Orthodox Church abroad. We are situated near the Holy Trinity Monastery in Jordanville, NY. Please visit our website:

Nature provides a natural inspiration for my photography. But nature is not my only subject. I also enjoy portrait and macro photography.

I see photography as a form of art, it gives me the opportunity to say things visually.
So please take a moment and have a look!
