Color and the wonder of creation are the motivating forces behind my art, as well as getting close up or unique views of the world around me. A native Texan, I grew up in a small farming community surrounded by miles and miles of farmland. My world consisted largely of the color brown, except for when the crops added green to the landscape a few months out of the year. When the sandstorms rolled in, even the skies were brown, and the dust and sand would blanket everything with a sameness that dulled the senses. This is why I love, and am passionate about color.
When I got my first camera, I fell in love with the macro lens. The world exploded in that lens in wonder and detail. The more I explored photography, then the artistry behind photo art, the more intrigued I became with all the possibilities. It became a journey of fascination, dedication, and thrill that I hope comes across to you in my images. I love it all--macro, landscape, quirky, black and white--and my style is eclectic and exploratory.
I am still a Texan, now residing in Grapevine with my husband and a little band of animals that keeps me company while I work.
