I am a freelance photographer and writer based in Colorado Springs who is grateful for the time to study, the imagination to be crafty and artistic, the peacefulness from maintaining a minimalistic home environment and, most importantly, the ability to to do what she loves.
My art practice spans many different mediums including photography, digital, pen and ink, acrylic, and oils. Each of my works is designed to inspire and reaffirm the beauty and transcendent messages that exists in the everyday.
Photographers, artists place themselves on a scale. In truth, collectors also place artists on the same scale. Amateur, apprentice and so on all the way up to master.
When I am asked to rank myself I always say "Rank amateur." I was a rank amateur photographer when I got my first digital camera nine years ago. I remained an amateur when I won two awards in New York and had a photo featured in the News Day, and I remain a rank amateur today.
Each art form creates it's own learning environment. Every time I learn 'this' about the technical side I also learn that I need to explore 'that'. Every time I learn a new composition trick it opens doors to even greater discoveries.
That is what makes art such a rewarding and challenging way to express myself.
