I am an inquisitive and creative soul who sees the world through the lens of my camera. My inspiration comes from the smallest inner workings of the natural world, and I translate that inspiration into photographs, digital art, mixed media pieces, and oral and written commentary on the world.Love of nature leads easily into life as a gardener. I garden on less than a quarter acre in an urban neighborhood. I grow a variety of vegetables and ornamentals and keep chickens for the eggs and the fertilizer. My goal is to turn my little urban plot into a bit of permaculture heaven.When I'm not wearing my artist apron or my gardening clogs, I spend my days teaching at a local college, holding classes online through my own consulting company, and building my Avon sales team. I am passionate about helping others find their place and their passion in this world.
