Dates:  1944, 30 August -
Born:  US, MO, Kansas City
Active:  US
Aerial photography of America from a small plane or a hot air balloon. She has also done studies of the birds and flowers of the prairies. 
Artist statement: 
"The foundation of my work has come from photographing the prairies of Kansas and North America from Canada to Texas, much of it aerial work. I began with attention to the native prairie ecosystem and moved to the human inhabited prairies. I‘m currently photographing places on the ground that I photographed from the air for my Revealing Chicago project. See I‘m also photographing wooded areas and oak savannahs that survive by the grace of human care." (February 2006)
