Starting from a very young age I was deeply drawn to my creative side. Although I was born in Northern California I always dreamed of living Colorado where we would vacation every summer. I believe my imagination has always helped me in my creative passions. 

As a young child craft time at church and elementary school was my favorite of all times, outside of sitting on my dad’s lap for I sketched on his lap often.

We moved to the Vail Valley in 2000 and have been blessed living here in the state I had always dreamed of as a youth.
After 25 years and countless hours in the medical world I now work part time now for a surgeon in Vail, CO. Art had to take a side step for sometime but… Knowing I still had to blossom my creative side once I slowed down, I started up a small business in 2015 focusing on photography. I primarily do landscape photography and produce my favorite images on aluminum. I still spend some time oil painting as well.
