Hello, I am the happy owner of Bramble Glen. I love nature, art, travel, kids and creativity! I have a degree in Geography/Anthropology but have been working as a professional photographer for over 17 years.
When my children were young, I became interested in childhood development and early education. I wanted to be involved in their education and had a deep desire to get them exploring. In 2012, I started a nature-based preschool program which has expanded into an after-school program. When I started Nature Discovery classes, I wanted to spark natural learning by promoting exploration, discovery and creativity. Walking across logs, climbing trees, digging, building with sticks and all the other activities that happen while exploring nature help promote independent thinking, imagination, confidence, physical balance and creative problem solving.
I enjoy watching kids explore the forest & creek by our home. Images of The BEARS OF BRAMBLE GLEN and the adventures they dream up with their blankets are inspired by the imaginations of young children. To get your kids involved in the creative process, please check out my Bears of Bramble Glen page where they can suggest ideas for new images and see their imagination come to life!
Much like the world of the BEARS OF BRAMBLE GLEN, we live in valley near a creek and an old growth forest.
