My first experience as an artist was in High School where my instructor encouraged me to build and submit my first portfolio.
My early influences were my instructor in High School and Ansel Adams.
It was there that I realized that I wanted to pursue a career in photography when I was accepted by portfolio review to the University of Delaware Governor's School for Excellence. Followed the next summer by earning a partial scholarship and admittance to a summer program at Parsons School of Design in NYC.
I returned after many years to pursue photography as a career and went on to study photography and graduated from the New York Institute of Photography.
I currently work from San Antonio, Texas, and travel as often as possible to other locations. I have had the fortune as an army wife to travel, and meet incredible people who inspired and pushed me. Now that we have settled down, I am devoting more time to my art and passion of photography.
I hope that my images bring much joy and beauty into the world of the viewers as they do when I am making them.
