My name is Jen Gould.  I’m a photographer and artist living on the eastern shore of Maryland.  My photography focus is primarily conservation- photographing wildlife, plants and scenery to bring attention to all the beauty there is to be appreciated — and protected.

My art ranges from wildlife to little dinosaur fae to chaotic mixed media.  I’m partial to watercolors, but I enjoy experimenting with all sorts of media.  Most of my travels consist of road-trips thru the US and Canada.  Its usually just me and my two dogs exploring nature, perusing thrift stores and antique malls, searching out awesome dog parks, great breweries, indie cafes and delicious vegan eats.

I meet a diverse and interesting mix of people in my travels, sometimes resulting in amazing friendships or meaningful life lessons.  Sharing my experiences with the people I meet and learning about their own lives and experiences has become an integral part of my journey.  What started out as “what I do for a living” has become “what I do with my life”.

And so, This Woman Wanders…

  1. Hi! I ended up on your blog by strange happenstance. Your mom posted a message on my cousin’s facebook saying “My daughter [—] had some very nice things to say about your sweet family.” When she mentioned your blog I had to google it and I’ve been ogling over your travels since. I’m indubitably jealous but, with intentions of guiding as a career path, can’t wait to follow in your tire tracks – with my bike and feet. So I wanted to know if you’re usually an active and outdoorsy person. I assume so but I’ve seen nothing that says “i just finished hiking for 8-days straight.” If so, look me up next time you’re in Vancouver or Southern Ontario (I’m back and forth a lot).


    1. Hi Riley. Thanks so much for your kind words! I love being outdoors, but my current hikes are more in line with day hikes at this point. Who knows, maybe one day I’ll move into the backpacking arena. Happy travels to you!
