There is a time that comes and you find yourself thinking, after taking pictures for so long, why am I taking so many pictures?
The simplest answer is……
 I am obsessed.

It’s a healthy obsession.
At least I am not killing my self with some kind of something.
I may be killing my finger with constant “clicking” ( I am not joking my right index finger hurts sometimes when it rains.)
 I walk with eyes wide OPEN.
 I am in love with the process.
The searching.
The scooping out  details of all things around me.
 I bend down, I look under, I jump up, I stand on chairs, and I sit still.
 I breathe.
Holding my camera in my hand is security for me.
 I feel strong and mighty.  I feel purpose flowing through my veins to my heart.
 I feel satisfied.
 In today’s world this feeling is hard to find.
 There is so much in the way. 
 So many opinions, so many pictures floating around that one has to wonder will they all be seen.
 There are an amazing supply of beautiful pictures.
 Every where I look I can find one; the net, a gallery, TV, in a book, on a card, in a home, on an iphone, in a store….
 It’s phenomenal to witness this time in photography and the human need to document it journey.  
Not only unique experiences,
 but the everyday experience.
  The day in and day out experience of being alive.

This is what Open Life Studio is all about.  This is the heartbeat of its life force.
  The beauty in “EVERYDAY LIVING.”

I am obsessed with documenting the moment, this moment, that moment that we all take for granted and may not realize.  It is what makes our life if we only take the time to look.  It’s the moments that adds up to days, that add up to months, and eventually to years.
  It is this that I am obsessed with.  
These moments are beauty, that is the meaning of life.  
fine art photography in everyday living…
my studio is OPEN for those who want to or need to take a moment and take it all in…
if only for a moment-
 one moment 
can change your life-
if you
let it.

I am a self taught photographer and mixed media artist with a degree from the North Carolina School of the Arts in classical theatre performance. Stage was my first love and brought me into the world art while photography is what made me want to stay. I am married to superman, and am the mother of three little super-ducks. I studied creative writing at the Univeristy of Tn and classical drama at the NC School of the Arts, and a Masters in Education with concentration of inclusion and curriculum. I've liived in NYC and LA for the past decade and moved back to TN for some home cooking and back yard fun . I spend most of my days getting little ones through life and playing in my studio. I sell my work through different venues and am really happy where I find myself these days. I love to drink a bottle of wine (with my hubby) coupled with extra cheddar blast goldfish! Having kids has changed my life, the arts has shaped my life, and my soulmate continues everyday to walk through my life beside me. What else could a country city girl like me need.
