Thank you all for your continued encouragement and support!  

My Mother and Father taught me to love the world around me… and if I can help others to see with new eyes and find joy by showing that beauty through photography. I have accomplished my hearts goal. Husum, WA is my childhood home and I consider home to be anywhere from Mount Adams to the Columbia River. I give thanks to my parents for their love for Nature and God, and for the years we spent immersed in nature as i grew up in this paradise.

There have been several gallery showings of my photography in 2011-2013


There are Ongoing displays on loan at Skyline Hospital in White Salmon, with several images purchased and on display at North Shore Clinic near the hospital. 


February 2013 was a well received showing at Skyline Hospital that helped me realize my goal of helping others with healing images, and

March 2013 was a very successful  showing in the White Salmon Library

Early June I had a successful  booth during White Salmon Spring Fest.  

There have been shows at Grounds Espresso and North Shore Cafe,  and The Inn of the White Salmon,  and North Shore Clinic  in White Salmon, Washington;    Three of the 40  finalist images were mine  in the Chasing the Light Show in the Columbia Art Gallery in Hood River, Oregon in August 2012.

December 2012 and January  2013 was a photo exhibit at Solstice Wood Fired Cafe in Bingen, WA.  

Published Works:

Several of my images have now been published in books, magazines and calendars .  Here are a few examples

May 2013   “Portland Monthly Magazine” ran a full page with this image


“Weather Guide Calendar” by Accord Publishing has featured some of my rainbows and lenticular Clouds for 4 years running (2011, 2012 both have full page month images and 2013 had a small Lenticular  image. 2014 will have a full size Lightning photo)

“Weather of the Pacific Northwest” by Cliff Mass, atmospheric scientist at University of Washington, is an excellent weather book for the Northwest, and includes a lenticular image over Mount Adams.

Lenticular -4287

On his weather blog, Cliff posted about my work, calling me a “SKY POET”.  I liked that!  I am particularly fond of Lenticular clouds and have a large collection of images featuring these unusual formations, and am known on Flickr as the Queen of Lenticulars!  That bit makes me chuckle… as I know I am no queen!  But I thank my Flickr and Facebook friends for the encouragement.

Cross Country Magazine has printed two of my Lenticular images in an article on Mountain Wave Clouds

The Stranger Magazine, Seattle Magazine, and others have published images of mine, and many  have been shown on news stations such as KOIN 6 and KPTV 12 over the last three years.

“The Infinity Loop”, a travel guide published by Clackamus County had a Gorge and Mount Hood image on the cover in 2011


On another note… I have two website addresses, starlisa.net currently points to this blog as the website with that name was hacked and I have yet to fix things!

Thank you for coming to VISIT!!!

    Enjoy your work…simply beautiful!


  6. I wish I could learn how to take such beautiful photos. Do you ever do workshops? – Terry


    • Terry I have considered doing that… I did do a little job shadowing with a teenager for a school class which was fun, and some tutoring in Lightroom. I feel so inadequate to teach, as I still feel there is so much I don’t know, but then again I guess there is probably more that I do know than I realize.

    I just found your site today and was so appreciative of your work of our beautiful area that we live in. I grew up in The Dalles and lived in Hood River for many years too. I love the gorge and your photography is stunning and has captured the beauty that I hold dearly in my mind and heart. I would love to see your displays when I get home from Arizona soon. Judy
