From the time I was a small child my life has been full of creativity and imagination. I lived with a grandmother who always had her hands in something, whether it be baskets, quilts, or good ol' southern cookin'. I have a mother who could create the most beautiful stained glass windows and who now paints beautifully, and a father who loves to tinker with all things as long as he is outside. I grew up with a vast expanse of woods to explore and a small point and shoot camera for my eye to see the world in. That's what started my passion for art and most definitely my love for photography. I don't have that point and shoot camera anymore, but a great day for me is one walking through the woods with a camera around my neck. I love seeing things through the eye of my camera, and allowing others a glimpse into how I see.
