I have always loved nature and I am an avid birdwatcher. I majored in art while I was in high school but went into nursing instead . After getting married and raising three children I fell in love with wild life photography. I enjoy taking long walks in our area parks and my camera is always with me. I have taken many photography and digital art classes and feel I have learned a lot of ways of presenting my photos. I enjoy working with Painter 12 and Photoshop. They have taught me a whole new way to create art. I also created layouts for many designers using their digital kits & my photos. I really enjoyed creating layouts & thought I would take classes on designing digital kits & learn to be a designer instead of a layout artist. I designed kits for IvyScraps for a short time & realized I really loved taking photos so I went back to photography & digital art.I hope you enjoy my art as much as I enjoy creating them.
