A True Nomad

As a nomad, I yearn to delve deep into ancient civilizations where each turn of a corner tells another story.  I yearn to wander, roam and hike up switchback trails in Marin, California, or meander either by elephant, raft or on foot, along rivers that cut through humid junglescapes where the crickets hypnotic rhythm gives way to human surrender.  And I yearn to get lost lost in the back alleys of colonial cities such as Havana, Cuba; Granada, Nicaragua or Cartagena, Colombia and discover the stunning beauty of urban decay.  And yet, I also yearn for home, for quiet, a chance to hear the birdsong at daybreak from my own bed and wake up to put a pot of tea or coffee on a slow boil and choose from my collection from around the world; Darjeeling, Java, Costa RIca or Oolong…


As a photographer, writer, psychotherapist and nature lover, I am passionate about living in Marin County, CA. The perfect home base, Fairfax, CA is where I get out daily on the miles and miles of open space and find inspiration and plot my next journey out of Marin into the world. More about Mary... Mary is a New York Native who has been living in Northern CA for the past 20 years. She is a "Creative Image Photographer" infusing digital images with innovative techniques. Her favorite spot to take photos is muddled amidst the trees of Marin County CA, or in an exotic urban environment near the ocean, under the sky, and completely in awe. Mary's goal is to capture this scenery, to reach into the mystery of life, into the everyday magic, use the light and the dark as guides, delve into the chaos or the quiet and capture and whittle away at these snapshots, without disrupting their original essence, until they come alive and rich with depth and mood. Her mission is to create unique works of art that bring this depth, mystery, upheaval or serenity to people's walls and homes and ultimately that her work becomes a catalyst to help shift onlookers mood and outlook even if for a moment in time. Her work has been described as dreamy, ethereal, mysterious and mythical and yet also simple and straightforward. Currently her photos are on display at Google Headquarters in California.
