About

Love for finding the funk in junk.

Born into art, long before becoming a parent, my first passion began. I started out drawing from the time I could hold a pencil and crayons. I was never given a coloring book because my father wanted me to learn to create my own path, outside of the lines. My love for art grew and grew. I attended the University of Utah starting with ceramics, but in the process, discovering my talent for photography. In 1996 I graduated with a B.F.A. in fine art and photography, giving birth to my first son the same year. Three boys later, life took over and photography fell to the wayside. Thanks to digital photography I am now able to keep up my passion. I am, however, currently working on getting my darkroom up and running. I miss working with chemicals and that feeling of not instantly knowing what will develop. That is a goal of mine, to get back to my roots.

Enter passion number three - vintage finds (my kids are now number one, photography now number two). This passion also helps our environment which, I guess you can group into passion #1 too.

As far as material objects are concerned, when I was a child I was always looking for toys with imperfections because I knew most other kids were looking for the perfect ones. That desire is with me to this day. However, now as an adult, my quest is also to keep the landfills from growing - one item at a time.
