I am a lifelong resident of the USA's smallest state. We may be small, but we're stacked with talented people, and I consider myself fortunate to be among them. I honestly can't remember when I wasn't doing something artistic. I grew up drawing and eventually was drawn to painting. I have spent my life as an artist, and my photography actually grew out of necessity. I began photographing the scenes I would then paint. Eventually my landscape and travel photography started to overtake my painting, and I decided to move further into photography. I am still learning some of the nuances of lighting, but I love being able to capture the images I imagined in my head. Thanks for stopping by!
