We are passionate about history...

After over twenty years of working in Boston photographic industry we moved north of Boston to a small New England town. I started volunteering at a local historical society and became enthralled in the beauty of their collections. It was then and there I decided to contribute my photographic knowledge to a worthy cause - preserving our American heritage and the important historical collections.

Our passion to preserve history...

...derives from the fact that we have very little documented family history of our own. Our family heritage remains an aloof mystery intertwined with tales from unreliable sources. We may never learn the true stories of our past, but we have become determined to assist others with preserving their histories and artifacts for future generations.

Educator, college professor, director of programming and chairperson of an art department are just a few of the many hats I have worn. The hat I prefer is the artist beret, working in my studio creating collages in a variety of mediums and enjoy each unique outcome.
