My family has been coming to Shelter Island for over 75 years, and I have been absorbing the beauty of this place into my blood since childhood. I've enjoyed watching my own children form their bond with this landscape. Everywhere we turn there is beauty—extraordinary, yet simple beauty. It has been my passion to capture it whenever possible. And now it is my pleasure to share it and remind you of your special bond with this exceptional island.

As a designer, inspiration is everywhere. Photography is my muse. The collection of images displayed on this site are the fruit of my vision and an extension of my design aesthetic, which, over the years, my mother repeatedly encouraged me to share with the masses. I finally listened.
