I would like to introduce myself to the community.

I am a professional artist whom has expanded her resume to include photography.

Watching me grow and improve, my mentor John DeBorg, suggested that I give this a try. I have improved over that last six months and continue to shoot whenever, whatever I can.

Currently I have 24" x 36" canvas panels of the LocaLandmarks of Kerrville hanging in an insurance agency that moved to a new location.

From May 21 - June 7 the Kerrville Folk Festival is holding its annual 18 day festival. I will be having a booth for the first time.

I hope you enjoy my work and find it inspiring if nothing else.

The above photo is what I term "super-macro" as i am using a 70mm-300mm zoom/macro lens with a +10 magnifying filter.

My daddy was very proud of me. Not so much for my life's "successes" but for my undying will to create. Even with pain levels that never go below 7, I continue to create. In fact, creating helps distract me from the pain, which is one of the best medications on the market and it is free.

I wish he could see these images loaded up on dreamstime Stock photography site. He would be more than excited and proud of his ailing daughter and...
