Bobbie first studied classical ballet but later her interest shifted to drawing and painting. In 1990 she began to exhibit her paintings, generally depicting views of the American West. Needing photographic reference for her inspiration, she began to photograph her subjects as well. At her first show she exhibited her paintings accompanied by these photographs, and quickly discovered that it was in fact her photography which received particular attention.
Praise for the painterly quality of her photographs encouraged her to delve deeper into the skills of fine art photography. She uses 35mm digital cameras and creative techniques she has developed using Adobe Photoshop software, fusing technology and photography to create the ultimate fine art image.
