About the Artist

Self Portrait in Tokyo
I was born and raised in Western Kentucky. I got married and followed my husband to Texas where I earned a degree in Business Administration. As the years passed I worked as a CPA, had three children and applied my talents and skills in a variety of domestic pursuits and volunteer activities.

I moved to the Pacific Northwest 11 years ago. Since moving to Washington my artistic pursuits have included quilting, scrapbooking and paper arts, as well as pixography. I also enjoy writing, cooking, gardening, genealogy, traveling,and watching movies.

As Charlotte says, in the movie, "Lost in Translation," "I tried taking pictures, but they were so mediocre. I guess every girl goes through a photography phase."

While I have taken pictures all of my life, often they did seem mediocre. It wasn’t until photography branched into the digital art form of pixography that it captured my imagination. Fortunately, it is never too late to apply our experiences and unique perspective through a new medium of expression. 

I believe there is an artist in every one of us. It is a special joy to find a medium which captures my imagination and allows me to express my own unique artistic vision.
