A fine art photographer based in Columbus, Ohio, Darlene is inspired by the beauty that light brings to both natural and manmade environments. She specializes in painting with light in varied settings. From night landscapes to abstracts created in her dark studio, the common elements are off camera, handheld lights and extremely long exposures. She produces luminous works with a mystique that makes the ordinary seem extraordinary.

In addition to solo exhibits, her art has been juried into numerous regional, national and international exhibits. 

Darlene is an Active Art Member of the National League of American Pen Women and the Central Ohio Branch of NLAPW.
