Nena was born, raised and educated in Durango, Colorado.  She graduated with a degree in Anthropology and spent many years working as an archaeologist.  Her interest in photography started when she was very young and it was during her work years that it became a focus.  The recording of archaeological sites did not allow for an artistic outlet so upon retirement, her passion for the craft was expanded to include the artistic nature of a wide variety of subjects.  Please enjoy the sights and, hopefully, you will be drawn in and feel a part of the places she has visited.
