This is a great photo that is so appropriate for my home (my husband & I are both firefighters and have cows)! It was packaged so well so it wouldn't bend or be rolled in transit. Plus it was shipped so quickly! I love it!
Life is an adventure. Document the journey!
I began my professional life as an interior designer. After placing countless generic pictures on walls, I quickly realized that everything displayed in a home must represent the owners’ personalities. I saw a need for art that reflected real life. It was then that I discovered my love of photography could easily be combined with my love of designing interiors. I then made the decision to create art with personal stories to which people could relate. I picked up a camera and set off with a goal to fashion friendly designs which highlight the beauty of items and moments we all see on a daily basis. I hope my art makes the viewer feel happy and peaceful.
When I am shooting, I study the scene, playing with new ways to make it tangible to the viewer. A compelling photo will find a way to allow the story to unfold. Occasionally real life needs a splash of fun so I re-imagine reality within an art piece. I put great emphasis on the details in my photos, taking great care to configure the image in a way that will hopefully pull those who are simply passing by to want to stop and take a closer look.
I live in the American Southwest and I am truly inspired by my surroundings. I see the world in color and I need sunshine. The desert provides endless inspiration in the form of sunsets, creatures great and small, and history. I am continually fascinated by the unexpected brilliant flowers and hidden oases. I am a free spirit with a very active imagination who is in complete awe of mother nature. My dream is that you will relate to one of the creations you find in my shop. I love to hear that shoppers can find a piece of their life expressed in my art. When we have things in common, the world becomes a smaller, more welcoming place.
I am an eternal optimist. I have always been told that I look at the world from a different angle than most people, but that is okay. It makes life more fun. I have always had a need for creative outlets, and I enjoy being unconventional. I am blessed to have a phenomenal support team which has unwaveringly encouraged me to put my art out into the world which has led me here.
Since embarking on this new endeavor, I have had pieces displayed in galleries in Chicago, Denver, and Phoenix as well as featured in multiple on-line galleries. I want to thank you for visiting my Etsy store and invite you to leave feedback. I am always interested in what others are thinking and what motivates them to keep smiling throughout the day. I invite you to bring a personalized, unique piece of art into your home; convo me and request a custom order.
Owner, Designer, Curator, Creative Photographer & Artist
I am an artist on a journey. My destination is unknown. I follow my heart where it leads, my faithful camera always by my side. I am easily distracted by anything that sparkles and I have a soft spot for all animals, the desert, and showy blooms.
