When I was a little girl, I dreamt of being an artist for Walt Disney. Life circumstances took a different turn and I gave my deepest dreams up. However, my regret for not finishing college grew stronger. I decided to return after almost 30 years, retired from 20 years in the massage industry and took the leap of faith in myself. I fell in love with learning photography in ART 139 (Digital Photography I). I live for being behind the lens to capture visual stories in the digital media realms. I have been a writer since I was 7 and now I have a new artistic expression that allows me to explore life. My inspirations are Dorothea Lange, Vivian Maier, Diane Arbus, Mary Ellen Mark and Annie Leibovitz. These women inspired me to excel by embracing my storytelling abilities in a new artist medium that provides fantastic self-expression. My original dream is altered based on this new found love. I virtually graduated from college May 2020 due to CoVid and put my reimagined dreams into action.
