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!

I love my swan photos on canvases. I give Leslie an A+ for clearly answering all my questions for this custom order. She was a joy to work with.


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.

    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.

Thank you for taking the time to visit and view my photos. Through my photos, I want to convey my love of the little things in life...the beauty that is all around us yet is somehow often overlooked and lost in the hectic pace of our daily lives. Please enjoy!

All photos are printed on archival paper for superior quality. Please note that colors, shades, and tones vary by computer screen. Slight differences may occur on the actual print vs. the computer screen image. These are to be expected and are not considered defects or problematic. Slight cropping differences may occur between image on screen and what is printed. Differences, if any, will be very slight and will not affect the overall appearance of the photo.

It is my sincere hope that you will feel an emotional response to the scene as I do when capturing the moment.
