I have loved taking pictures since I was eight years old and saved enough money to buy a Kodak Instamatic x-15. In my 20s, I learned the basics on a used Pentax 35mm, but it wasn't until Facebook and smartphones that I became addicted to taking pictures, manipulating them, and sharing them for others to see. I create my work with an iPhone, a Canon DSLR, a LUMIX LX, and various point & shoot cameras. I edit right on my phone with a variety of apps and use Photoshop and Lightroom on my computer. I have recently started enhancing my photographs with paint.
