Although I am a Senior Citizen, I have only recently fullfilled a lifelong dream of getting certified and USING my passion for photography. I received certification from New York Institute of Photography!
Accomplishments include: Finalist in a National Juried Exhibition, selected from various media entered from six states; published in East TN Magazine; commissioned by an interior designer to provide artwork for and photographs of a model condo, photos used on their website; published in Studios Magazine;; voted as one of the best 3 photographers in Blount County.
My love of photography extends far beyond any one specialty. I am fortunate to live in the Tennessee Valley at the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains. I am surrounded by beauty, encompassing all that Nature has to offer.
