Little Ms. X……..Goes to Kindergarten

Time is passing just as I suspected….kids are growing just as I was told…..Life is moving as fast as a scooter wheel rolling on the pavement of the road that takes us home…..I am quite during times of these realizations…..I am still……I deliberately breathe it all in to fill my bones with these sweet moments in present time that melt into instant memories…..


Tkinder5    Tatum started Kindergarten this year with a quick “love you Mom” and a grin from ear to ear.  She was up and dressed in fifteen minutes and thought the idea of taking cottage cheese, six carrots and 10 red grapes was the best choice for a quick-lunch in between meeting new friends.  She is my little doll…the doll I had dreams of playing with one day when I was playing with my dolls in my room as a little girl….I am so proud and so eager to see her year after year….become…..herself…..

First thing her teacher said when picking her up from class was, “I think we have a little artist in our class”.


We both looked at each other and smiled.










Tatum and I are best friends……LOVE is strong…..Mothers and daughters are too…….

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.
