It is NOT sunny, it is NOT warm


If you are one of the lucky ones who sit in East Tn today it is not your lucky day!

Old man Winter has not yet let go of his grip!

 The chill in the air chills while the rain falls like heavy feelings hitting the pavement as shattered glass.

Gray is the color of our vision as the night sky lefts its veil over our day.

The fire place still crackles inches away reaching out to evelope any cold moving object.

 I have come to love the weather here all over again.

 As a child I remember I couldn’t wait to wake up to see what kind of day it would be.

 Sunny, cold, windy, rainy, snow, or just nice.

 The season’s live here year round.

 This is in my being, my deepest parts AND right now my deepest part is missing Spring.

 It’s ready to rebirth into a new cycle of weeding out the old and in with the new.

With kids on bikes and rolling in grass and especially wind flowing in and out of our open windows on a spring filled sleepy night.


Old man Winter is old!

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.
