Today, SEVEN YEARS AGO, I was given a LUCKY CHARM for the rest of my life….



To have her in my life is to have a flower following me around on all the rainy days


Her smile envelopes my tears when I need it most

Her laughter warms me like hot chocolate on a cold winters day


Her voice lifts my spirit up as we fly together to the moon on our magic carpet ride…


I am SO Lucky to have HER.  Grateful she is here with me to share her journey of LIFE.

I am so proud to call her my DAUGHTER, so excited to watch how her vision of this world translates into her actions of BEING….

Tatum, MY LOVE, my daughter and friend…

….you are MY LUCKY CHARM…

My life changed the day you brought PINK into my world…..


….and I will FOREVER be the LUCKIEST MOM with MY LUCKY CHARM flying to the moon on our magic carpet ride….

(with  of course our buttered popcorn and LIFE TIME SUPPLY of Weigle’s Skim Milk!)

 I LOVE YOU LITTLE MOO MOO—–to the moon and back again a million times and more!

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.
