During a period of my life when my creative energies were at their lowest I had a vivid and colorful dream. I was drawing a beautiful blue and green pear, and I felt fulfilled and at peace. I had never created in my dreams before. This dream felt like a message that it was time to create again.

Creating art, objects, and spaces to enhance my enjoyment of life has always been second nature to me. Through pen, pencil, paint, calligraphy, and the creation of cards, paper objects, books, and jewelry I breathe more deeply. I love to pursue more and more ways and forms of creating, and my work is always evolving and changing.

I find joy in capturing a moment in time through the lens of a camera. Landscapes, buildings, plants, animals, and people all captivate me visually. There is something poignant and timeless for me about these captured moments, and I love sharing my vision with the world.

I have always had the dream of pursuing my passion for self-expression through art and photography more fully. I am delighted to share my journey with you, and I invite you to join me as I aspire through my art and photography to breathe deeply and live joyfully every day.
