My passion is for creating art by capturing the extraordinary in the ordinary appearance of abstractions, architecture, and nature through the lens of my camera...my digital memory box. Through a series of connections and "art-portunities", my hobby, a form of relaxation, and a way for me to support my community as a volunteer photographer has metamorphosed into a passionately serious journey into fine art photography. Volunteer photographer: National Folk Festival, NC Folk Festival, Human Race 5k, Leadership Links Green and Black Gala, Greensboro Fashion Week, Greensboro Mayor's Committee for Disabled Persons ~ Annual Shoppers' Day. My journey has segued to include exhibits at the High Point Public Library, Distractions, Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts, Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center ~ Spine Gallery, Flow BMW, Red Dog Gallery, Center for Visual Artists, and GreenHill Center for NC Art. Emerging artist...2019/2020 GreenHill Center for NC Art Winter Show. As an introvert, this public participation is a stretch for me but I am grateful for this new season and I value learning from other emerging and established artists, refining my skills, and finding the courage to become an extroverted introvert in the community of area artists. I am currently a visual artist with AFAS (Art for Art's Sake) in Winston-Salem. As an artrepreneur, I recently launched the first entry in my line of greeting cards, which are sold at Sun Rise Books in High Point and also direct.
