I’m a self-taught photographer & love taking photos along with dabbling in creating work. It’s wonderful to look at so many wonderful artists’ works & also learning. Favorite animal – cats. I love Stephen King books and movies; love stories; Criminal Minds, Law and Order-Special Victims. I work PT with my daughter at a private school. I appreciate all who visit my work.
