A photo...one moment that will never occur again...one entry into life's diary.
I embrace all things nature. I believe life is about experiences and personal growth. I appreciate life's gifts, accept life's challenges, and try to share these in my art.
I began drawing as soon as my mother put pad and paper within my reach. I studied art and photography in college, both of which became my hobby go-to's throughout life's stresses as I became a wife, mother, and professional civil engineer.
I currently live with my husband in Kingwood, Texas. We love to travel and explore. We have hiked the backcountry of the Western Sierras, jeeped Southwestern deserts, paddled rivers and bayous, explored caves, walked atop lava fields, and (gratefully) relaxed on tropical shores...all the time enjoying "the moment." Most valued, he has exercised great patience while I worked to capture our travels in paint or film.
Finally, the inner artist cried for more time, and in 2010, I began to spend more and more time with digital photography. A couple years later, I traded my oil paints for digital painting. I enjoy sharing my work. I have been published on occasion, won a few awards, had my work, chosen to hang in several Houston hospitals and businesses, and contribute to stock photography.
I feel blessed in life, love, and art. Thank you for sharing your time looking through my work. Please feel free to contact me about any of my work.
