About

Thanks for taking a look around. I'm a stay at home mom of three great kids. Now with my kids in school full time, I've been re-exploring who I am and what hidden talents, ideas and interests I have had on the back burner for the last 13 years. Looking back over the years, I have caught myself saying, "When the kids are in school, I will start..." Last August when they started back to school, I went from "when the kids are in school" to "what now?"

From the time I received my first camera, I looked through the lens and saw more than a blue sky with a few clouds. I would try to figure out the best way to capture a feeling, a mood, a memory; a beautiful photograph to have for years to come; not only for me but for others as well.

During my re-exploration, I uncovered a long lost love and desire to learn to oil paint. I had an opportunity to attend art classes and seminars over the last 13 months. I was delighted to find this long lost love turns a canvas into wonderful art! I'm still learning. But I love taking a photograph and painting it .
