According to Anne Marie Palita Smith, “Photographing Rose Valley’s Historic District gave me the welcome opportunity to meet new neighbors, and it’s been a joy to discover and explore hidden parts of our beautiful and architecturally diverse community.”

She is a native of Delaware County and self-taught in photography, with a background in nursing and biological research. Her earlier work focused on large-scale landscapes. She continues to diversify her perspective and develop her technique; recent work includes more intimate views of nature, and travel photography.

She is a member of Media Arts Council, Chester County Art Association, and Oxford Arts Alliance. She has exhibited and won awards in many juried and non-juried shows and galleries in the Philadelphia area since 1989.  Her photographs have also appeared in several text and online publications.
