Photographic Imagery along with the Written Word satisy me immeasurably.
I have early memories of making origami hearts as well as drawing a colored pencil portrait of my second grade teacher while in elementary school in the farming town of Aurora Missouri. I can still smell the fragile newsprint; folded in quarters tucked away in my take home folder. As that drawing is now brown with age, it sits quietly tucked away in my archival keepsakes file, while the thought of it feeds my continuing need to create something beautiful and meaningful in this life. These creative beginnings seep into my everyday life as I navigate my urban landscape.
I share these passions with you, dear viewer, dear reader.
And on we go.
