I have been creative and an artist since I was very small. Growing up in National Parks gave me the love of plants and the scenery of natural places. Painting, illustrating ant photographing them has been a passion for my entire life. Admittedly, the first drawings do take some special explanation as to their content! I have a degree in Landscape architecture and have been a practicing residential designer for 20 years. During that time, I have been recognized with several design awards at the state and national level.
