She may be young but she only likes old things,
and modern music just ain't to her taste.
She loves the natural light
captured in black and white.

I've always felt like the song Monday Morning (quoted above) was written just for me because I'm a simple artist who finds magic in the mundane. I picked up a camera at 7 years old and have been searching for magic ever since.
I was born in Wyoming and from a young age, fell in love with art, music, and all the things that make life so lovely.
I attended Evangel University in Springfield, MO for one year and spent 2 years at the Art Institute of St. Louis. Now I live in Laramie, Wyoming with my husband and two adorable Boston terrier doggies.
Conceptual photography, to me, is altering reality and art to communicate or exaggerate ideas. I find it really difficult to express my thoughts through language, so photography is how I share my ideas. But most of all, it just makes me happy.
I aim to make the world more beautiful one project at a time. I thank God every day for my gifts and talents because they all stem from Him, the original creator. I hope you enjoy what you find on this website!
