I am an artist stuck in the real world working my boring 8 to 5 job only getting to concentrate on my true passions in my free time. I love photography, jewelry making, gardening and cooking. I am a transplant to the south from the Midwest. I love the warmth and being near the coast BUT I miss wide open spaces and thunderstorms! I hope to one day make my living doing what I love and being able to travel back to where I am from for tornado season every year! Oh the photographs I could take!
