Life in Full Color. Soft Pastels, Watercolors, Colored Pencils.  Sometimes we take for granted the majesty and variances of hues, and how they play against each other.

Fine Art & Photography

My camera(s) has traveled extensively and allowed me to capture and now share some of the most beautiful of sights and experiences.

surround yourself with the art you truly love!

I've been blessed with enjoying so many different media.  It allows me to render something special for just about everyone.
