It is so nice to be a part of this wonderful site.
I cannot remember a time when I was not surrounded by, learning about or producing art. I knew at a very early age that I would be an artist of some sort.
I received my Bachelor of Fine Arts/Photography from the University of North Texas and promptly moved to New York to chase my dream of fame and fortune. Well, I was very "fortunate" (worked with such greats as Horst and Arthur Elgort), but never found fortune or fame-I'm a terrible business woman.
After moving to Los Angeles in 1993, I received a Masters Degree in Clinical Art Therapy/Marital Family Therapy. Because producing art has always been so healing in my life, I now use it to help at-risk children and families.
I continue to produce my own work as well, which is black and white documentary portraiture and bookmaking.
I look forward to hearing from the other members of the "fotocommunity"
