Lorna Claerbout

I retired four years ago after 35 years of teaching biology in many different places in the world, including a village school in Ghana, an international school in England, and an independent school in San Jose. I grew up in a small town in Wisconsin where I enjoyed playing in the woods near the shores of Lake Michigan. I am delighted to be living now in a historic house in Carmel-by- the-Sea where I get to play on Carmel beach every day with my dog Charlie Darwin. I feel blessed to be a docent at two magnificent places, Point Lobos State Natural Reserve and Robinson Jeffers’ Tor House.

Being surrounded by such incredible natural beauty, I was inspired to join two photography clubs, the Carmel Foundation Photography Club and the Point Lobos Docent Photography Group. While I am only a beginning photographer, I continue to learn from the expertise of the outstanding photographers in both of these groups. Thanks to both Joyce Tarter Rideout and Celie Placzek for their leadership and inspiration.
