In high school, I dabbled in black and white photography. I then went to work in the corporate banking industry in San Francisco and spent the next 11 years on the 45th floor of an office building. I didn't think much about the creative side of my spirit until I had a child and decided to stay home and be a 'Mom'. This is when I learned some of life's most important lessons: humility, poverty, and patience. It wasn't until 4 years ago (22 years after becoming a mom) that I bought a digital camera. I was the last person to get a cell phone, a computer or a digital camera! Now, I am that person who always has her camera with her, forget everything else.
I am a private, in-home care provider by trade and a photographer, graphic designer and artist by choice. I live in San Ramon, California. I spend a great deal of my free time snapping pictures of the delta, rivers, ponds, sloughs, trees, birds, clouds and sunsets. I love taking landscape pictures and especially enjoy capturing California's changing tides. Nature is so amazing and it's forever evolving and changing--you can sit in one spot for hours and never capture the same picture twice.
So, when I bought my first camera about 4 years ago, I paid $32 online for a 12 mp point-and-shoot. I was flabbergasted at the awesome pictures I was taking--very impressed with myself! It's was so unbelievable how I could take 100 pictures, put them on my laptop, view them and start over within an hour. So, off to the races I went. I learned how to use photoshop and started making kaleidoscopes and realized that market for all of these designs for paper and textiles, corporate art, etc. So here's some of my artwork. I hope you like it.
