I was born and raised in Poland. I immigrated to Canada in 1982 and in 1999 my husband and I relocated to the United States. Like many Europeans, I was overwhelmed by the vastness and the beauty of North America, and I developed a passion for landscape photography.

About the Author...


We began camping in the wilderness and connecting with nature on weekends and holidays, first in a tent and later in a cap-over camper. It was during those camping trips that a dream of full-time traveling and living in an RV evolved. In 2002 that dream became reality, and we have been traveling in a 34 foot Airstream travel trailer ever since. America’s National Parks continue to be one of our favorite places to visit.

When Kristi Kay, a Cairn Terrier, joined us, the idea of a children’s book series about America’s National Parks as seen through Kristi Kay’s eyes grew as a natural extension of our lifestyle and love of nature. Through interactive adventure stories enhanced by photography selected from my vast photographic library, animation, sounds, videos, and unique graphics I hope to express my gratitude for what has become my home and to help cultivate appreciation and stewardship of these precious resources.
