Professional Photographer and Self-Taught Designer

I am a professional photographer and self-taught digital artist. I started digital designing in 2002 when my oldest was a newborn and I had some free time while on maternity leave. At that time, digital scrapbooking was not really even a thing yet. There were really only a few people I can think of who were doing it when I set up my first shop in 2004.

I tend to design products that I can use in both my photography business and also for scrapbooking our family photos. Most kits are 100% digitally created, but my more recent kits include items that I have photographed and then extracted in order to offer more "realistic" items for those who enjoy them.

A typical day for me involves my two active boys, our dog Isabela, and of course my husband of 25 years who is the love of my life. We live on 4 acres in upstate New York....our little slice of heaven. :) As a mom, I'm usually on the go quite a bit as our boys are busy with their personal interests of karate, swimming, and orchestra. This limits my ability to design on a regular basis now, but I do try to put up a handful of new items each year and I hope that you'll find several items in my shop that suit your scrapbooking needs. Please feel free to contact me if you have a request for a kit. I would be more than happy to discuss your needs and work with you to create something special that will work with your photos.
