I was working in the studio the other day right around dawn.  The time is slowly wading to summer here in East TN and it is hard to tell when the day is coming to an end.

Lately I have been noticing my kids hands.  They are growing.  They are looking bigger and older.  Their hands and my hands will never look the same.  But one day they will look like mine.

That’s a crazy thought!  Think about it.  No matter what you, I, she, he, they…will age.   Every year during Spring I realize this again and again.  Birth, rebirth etc.  Children getting in swimsuits, mom’s wishing they could get into swimsuits LOL

I notice how old I am getting.  How I feel the same but know I am not. I am not the same person I was a year ago, none the less 20 years ago!

Here’s the rub…

It’s all about PERSPECTIVE.

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.
