My journey into portraiture began when I was a teenager. I feel in love with drawing portraits around the age of 14. I pursued drawing throughout high school and also tried my hand at film photography.

In addition to portraiture, I also have a love for nature photography. I love going out hiking and capturing images of birds in flight. I recently decided to open a store on Fine Art America and offer my nature images for sale.

I am a homeschool mother to a super chatty 15-year-old daughter. I also have a super supportive husband of 12 years. I am also a fur Mom to the cutest Yorkie ever!

I have completed upward of 20 races back in my running days, 3 of which were half marathons. However, I wasn't crazy enough (or maybe committed enough) to go for the full marathon. I admire those who have conquered the marathon.
