I am a wife and mother of two and work out of Ocala, Florida. Pretty much from the moment I could hold a pencil, I have been in love with creating art. In my childhood, it was in sketching and pencil drawing. The way I could take a pencil and my own hand- and with just these things, give dimension, life, and feeling to what was otherwise just plain paper and graphite. Later on, and with any medium that was readily available, it had become more about my ability to create something unexpected-even beautiful sometimes. Art moved me, and still does, in such a way that I cannot properly articulate with words. (and isn't THAT ironic?) Somewhere along the way in my journey as an artist, I became seduced by the art of capturing on film, life's exquisitely fleeting, and sometimes-unseen moments. Far more than a photographer, I consider myself an artist, and the camera, my medium. While I understand the power in all styles of photography, my own passion is not found in setting up the cutesy pose, the perfect outfit, or the 'Say Cheese Grin'-but rather in documenting the raw natural beauty that reveals itself only in candor. I hope that you enjoy my work as much as I have enjoyed creating it.
