Starting down the artistic road came later in life for me and I'm constantly feeling like I'm playing catch up!  That being said, photography has become a part of my every day existence and the expression it affords me has been a trememdous tool for self undertanding and discovery.

Having lived my whole life within a six hundred mile radius, I took the leap in 2014 to move across country to Virginia, starting a new phase of my life.  My core interests and passions remain, however:  art/photography, growing food and medinical plants (and old timey flowers), experimenting and creating in the kitchen, reading and spirituality.

I have recently incorporated encaustic technique into my work, mounting prints to cradled board and coating with wax medium.  I feel this adds depth and interest to the photos.
