Tracking my style...


2007
My first attempt at portrait collage inspired by Misti Mawn and Kelli Rae Roberts'

2008 still have those eyes closed!

Below are a few years worth of glimpses from my journal pages as I found my style and worked out the details. What medium to use, what technique, what faces I did and did not like, trial trial trial and a lot of magazine and book lessons later...











trying different faces


 MY STYLE! begins to emerge...I love the look of a face that is not happy or sad but pondering, Love to do front profiles and tend to go to short hair. I am now using so many different mediums and have learned so much.

New Year- New Paths Ahead

New Year, New Paths ahead...The pics below are a few paths I walked this past year and am excited about the new ones ahead. I guess I have a theme here. Never knew how much the paths are evident in my life. Paths to faith, family,  fun, adventure, solitude, home, work and rest. What Path will I take today?









where to next?
