the age of nine, when I picked up my first camera, my dream was
to become a photographer. Time and circumstances had other ideas
and I became a yoga instructor. I taught yoga for 15 years, before
I finally allowed my spiritual side to guide me to my true calling-Photography!
My passion has always been for the arts; painting, sculpting,
and always the burning desire to create with my camera. Two years
ago, I finally was in a position to begin a new phase in my life
as a self taught photographer.
I moved to Santa Barbara County four years ago and am very inspired
by my surroundings, I learned to seek subjects out that may otherwise
be overlooked; things considered average or mundane, are very
beautiful to me and I try to convey that in my photographs
Although I am fairly new to the world of photography, I have produced
award-winning work that has been published and featured in several
exhibits, allowing me to express and share my point of view of
our world and its boundless beauty.
I will leave you with this one last thought; that I never truly
saw the world and its gifts until I viewed it looking through
the lens of a camera.
