I am a psychotherapy student, amateur artist and a stay at home mom with three children.. One lives in heaven now ..
Interests: I am fascinated by religion and politics and by what drives society and people to do what they do.. First camera at age 11, given to my by my grandmother, I have very little in the way of formal training..just a lot of practice and a desire to freeze moments of time with my camera.. Music is another passion.
