Taking On a Little More

When I was a little girl summer was magical.

I was the one outside catching fireflies and counting grass blades.  I loved the long days slipping into night.  I loved the  days that never seemed to end.  I remember playing with my siblings and cousins and friends like a kid should, free and imaginative.  I still look up and see airplanes as outer space rockets heading to distant planets.  I  would often find it hard to fall asleep when the sun lighting the green leaves outside my bedroom window.( I could never do that now!) Every summer my seven year old self sits just below my skin looking out like a window trying once again to stay up til midnight.


I have been rather busy the past week.  Let me tell you now.  I started a masters in Education and I am under water swimming through APA writing guidelines and research.  I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to my ‘personal thinking.”

Rest assured I am still thinking. I am still reflecting and I am still searching for the perfect pictures and words  to my daily experiences.  Bare with me while I adjust my time and mind to this new adventure in the “story of Stephanie.”  I am excited for the challenge and opportunity.  Open Life studio is up-ing it’s game! Ah, the possibilities!

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.
