I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Photography has always held an interest for me. When I was about 10, I had a Brownie camera. I remember holding it in my hands and enjoying the shape and the weight. Throughout the years I have owned a variety of film cameras culminating in being the proud owner of a Nikon F65 and what I considered some serious glass. I shot a lot of film with that camera and my goal was to achieve 5 or possibly 6 “perfect” photos out of the 24, or maybe 27 that I could squeeze out of each roll. That meant there were a lot of prints that I was less than happy with, but I always had a difficult time destroying them nonetheless.

It took me quite a while to embrace digital photography. Perhaps I liked the “purity” of film. Perhaps I wasn’t ready to tackle new technology. Perhaps I felt I would be spending money I should probably be spending on other, more immediate needs. Whatever the reason, I came to the world of digital in short, halting steps. But, once I had a DSLR in my hands and I started seeing the immediacy of shooting, the quality possible, the choices I had - whether it was to delete and reshoot or to edit until I had my vision captured, I was hooked.
