Being creative is different for everyone.  For me, it is a process that brings me joy, introspection and connection. It calms the anxiety brought on by today's headlines, transcends the noise of the airwaves, and puts some much needed positivity out into the world.  

Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek at my stuff! 

 

In a nutshell:

I'm a Native Floridian, raised in Jacksonville, living in Boston and Tallahassee along my journey. I've always been an art and photography buff, and I love preserving moments, whether the antics of funny Flamingos, or the priceless moments of sweet children.  I started out as a nature and wildlife photographer in 2012. (I've been in love with Flamingos since I was a child, have a great collection of Flamingo "stuff" and they are amazing photo subjects. They are funny and beautiful.  If you ever get the chance to see them up close and personal - do it.  It will change your life!)

 

One of my favorite photography quotes is from the movie Kodachrome:

"We're all so frightened by time, the way it moves on and the way things disappear. That's why we're photographers. We're preservationists by nature. We take pictures to stop time, to commit moments to eternity. Human nature made tangible."

I shoot with my Nikon D750. It goes everywhere I go!  I like shooting in natural light, but if you want a studio experience, I can make that happen, too!  I have a cute little photography studio and art gallery in Naples, FL where I am a proud member of the Naples Art District. 

 

When I'm not shooting photos, I'm painting.  When the pandemic hit and all the preserves and parks shut down, I began to paint using my photographs as reference.  I soon ran out of room in our condo, so now I have a beautiful studio and gallery in Naples.  Check out my "Paintings" page while you're here! I also paint wall murals and furniture.  

 

I love visitors, so stop by my studio in Naples at 5401 Taylor Road, Suite 1 and check it out.​​​

Life is short. Love hard, laugh often, forgive always. 

Do the Photoshoot!
