She thinks it's really stupid when photographers refer to themselves in the 3rd person on their biographies.
I needed to do something 'low speed' after a successful but stressful military career. I've have been an avid photographer for a few years and enjoy this 'internal' creative process and I was a full time student at Texas Tech University in Lubbock, Tx, pursuing a BFA in Studio Arts with an emphasis in Photography and Jewelry/Metalsmith Work. After taking an Art History course and learning a little about the Renaissance, I've become enamored with this art era. I took a trip to Florence Italy (the home of the Renaissance) and found a lot of inspiration there. I only wish I was as talented as the painters of that era.
I'm happiest when I'm outdoors with nature, and I love photographing the night sky. I feel my spirit soar when I'm outside! I enjoy traveling and exploring new places, but I hate flying. I'm always ready for a road trip - usually to a state or national park. I was selected the Artist in Residence program in the Petrified Forest National Park . I fulfilled my residency during the summer where Il lived in the park for a few weeks photographing the landscape and night skies. I be gave night sky presentations.
