# of Kids:
I am a fantasy art photographer, creating ethereal imagery through a blending of photography, art and technology.
You can visit my website at:
Other things about me...Family and friends are Everything...after that being an artist (meaning trying to be one that makes money, too) takes up the rest of my life!
I love listening to all kinds of great music (especially while I work) but I have a particular favorite.....my sister:
Circle of Wings:
Music that inspires me while creating artwork:
Priscilla Hernandez, Faun, Caprice, Nightwish, Tarja Turunen, Opera Babes, Sigur Ros, Jenna Greene, Sarah Brightman, Enya, Loreena McKennitt, Woodland to name just a few. And then I also listen to endless movie soundtracks.
A few of my favorites: Lord of the Rings, Kingdom of Heaven, King Arthur, Chocolat, Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Local Hero, King Kong(1933), Wizard of Oz, Jason and the Argonauts(old one), Jean Cocteau movies (La Belle et le Bete is my favorite).....oh, lots more, too!
Yeah...I am hooked on Lost.
I read many types of books but I love to collect beautifully illustrated children's books...old and new.
Dark Chocolate...dark, stormy days with a good cup of tea...traveling everywhere...taking thousands of photos...being with my family...creating...watching my children be creative.
Onions are my enemies!
Traveling, painting, Hiking through the woods finding the secret places fairies live, gardening, making costumes, collecting books....
Endlessly unorganized....easily lured by the dazzle of technology.....I buy too much fabric,always with good intentions....Post-it notes are drowning me in my own office....Ranch dressing...
Always striving to be better...and better organized, too!!
Being a good listener,
Always a strong supporter of anyone following their dreams...
My husband....for being able to live with me!

I've lived in California for over 20 years now and I don't ever recall our trees and flowers blooming in February, but that is what's happening!!
Spring has arrived and in honor of this beautiful season, I'm posting my latest artwork:
"Follow the Clairyon Call"
Enchanted Folks founder, Be Montague, always so beautifully wrote about the seasons every year......it was inspiring to me.
I miss Be's presence here on Enchanted Folk so much....
