... As I reverently entered a larger area of the Uffizi Museum in Florence, Italy, I knew that the painting was here, but where? I slowly turned to my left and found that I was standing three feet away from  it...Botticelli's Birth of Venus. It took my breath away! I was so overwhelmed at its size and grandeur that I nearly cried. I studied this painting in art history at UOP and did not care that the Uffizi was full of people. I was alone in the presence of one of the most beautiful, insightful, and moving paintings ever envisioned....

    Expressive writing and languages were my life's first interests. As I considered majoring in journalism, I studied photography to support that goal. I fell in love with photography and found that a study of design would strongly incorporate photography as well as art history; yet another love. My art influence was my mother, a watercolorist. Animation also fascinated me and I have determined all of this into web design.
If the beginning is the end,
then I will come in full circle to where I began. And I did.
