My mother took me to free art lessons at Fliesher Art Memorial in Philadelphia as a child, and would drag me to art museums, with promises for the reward of going to the Franklin Institute for good behavior. So, my art education started very early. For my 11th birthday, my dad gave me my first camera and I was in the darkroom with my stepmother later that same year. It was love at first sight. My family has a long history of artists on both sides, with my mother, grandmother and great grandmother as oil painters, and my great grand father as an acclaimed amateur photographer. I am an Atlanta area photographer. I have a BFA in Fine Art Photography from Georgia State University. I have been practicing my craft for over 30 years. My hope as a photographer is to make beautiful images for people to enjoy.
