About

Me

 I have always wanted to be an artist…a painter specifically. And I did try, but in the end, I studied Art History and realized that I am not a painter. Practically forced into photography by circumstance, I learned that I paint better with my eyes than with my hands. Sharing the beauty my eyes see is the important part.
