I am a Creator. From the moment I opened my eyes to this world, I knew that I was meant to create, and to capture the beauty of reality and fantasy in my works. I am a photographer, digital artist, author, and poet. I am inspired by Fantasy and Reality, and I try to capture moments that hold emotion and beauty.

I was born and raised on the Monterey Peninsula, California – a place of green forests, sandy beaches, and crashing waves. I was sucked into the ebb and flow of my own imagination at a young age. I began displaying my Traditional Art – hand drawings – on deviantart, but stopped for a while because of personal reasons. When I picked back up, I was starting my obsession with Photography, and was look at learning how to create Photomanipulations. I started out small, simple, and at the same place that everyone starts at.

I have grown my craft, but I am still learning. I hope to continue creating for years to come, and my biggest goal is to create things that speak to people, whether it be Photography or Digital Art.


I have a Canon EOS Rebel T2i with the standard lens, a macro lens, and a simple telephoto lens. It is a simple set up, but it works wonderfully for me at this point in my life. I am an Adobe girl – I use Lightroom 5 and Photoshop CS4 for any post-processing, and I shoot primarily in RAW format.

I use Adobe Photoshop CS4 for my Photomanipulations; my stock comes from DeviantArt, or my own personal stash of photos. Credit is given where credit is due, and I link to the images used in my blog posts.


I am also up for commissions, however I am not in the general space in my life to have a detailed listing of prices and types. I will continue to update this section and add information so that you all know what is going on!

    1. Thank you! It is actually a photomanipulation I did using two separate stock images. I do agree, whether photography or digital art, that it is uncommon to see an image of a storm done in browns. Thank you again!


  1. You are truly a daughter of Gaia! Keep shaping your craft; it’s incredibly beautiful and sincere. I wish you never ending inspiration for your magickal touch in life.
