Welcome to the "Sandwich Generation"!

Creating. whether through photography, painting, or graphic design -- has always been my outlet. So I find myself, once again, revitalizing this space so that it may revitalize me. The things that I offer here are simple things that I made for my own enjoyment and wish to share with a larger community in the hope that they may be enjoyed by others as well.
