From the time I was two and picked up my first pencil, I knew that art would forever define who I am. And I was right. Whether in school, raising my family, or pursuing my career, I found ways to indulge in clay, ink, oils, and pastels.

When the time came to hit the reset button, I applied for a passport, gave away my meager possessions, and accepted an overseas teaching assignment.

That was the easy part.

Crossing cultures challenged every pre-conceived notion I’ve ever had, and inspires me to continually observe life with fresh eyes. In my attempt to capture the extraordinary visions and candid moments, I discovered my new love, photography, and digital art became my new canvas. Life is truly an exercise in perception, and through my lens, I hope capture it all.
