I am a former licensed stylist in beauty and fashion formerly of San Francisco, California. I discovered the love of photography during the numerous fashion shoots of those days. I loved what I saw behind the lens, editing and post production. Mentored by photographer friends and teachers, I began to photograph and found a whole new way of seeing. As years went by, I witnessed the transition from film to digital which expanded the culture of photography and my own creativity. I also work with paints and mix media. In 2008, my work and I were declared: Treasures of Contra Costa County and region. My profile image on this site is the cover of a book I authored, Daughters of Royalty, it is an interactive bible study based on the favor of Queen Esther and challenged by the cry of Mordecai - YOU become the star of this book, giving you a time of rest, retreat and rejuvenation.
