Busy with my family as well as with a career I enjoyed very much, I did not take up photography until sometime after I retired. But once I started, it was not long before I was spending countless hours learning all that I could about the art of photography, the complexities of cameras and lenses, and the software that was available to me. Soon, I jointed my first art group and began exhibiting my art in the local gallery where I lived. I later expanded to another gallery and other venues. I also exhibited at Silver Dollar City for a few years and enjoyed success there. My portfolio grew—ranging from landscapes to seascapes to birds and animals as my husband and I took long road trips over the years, crisscrossing the country and visiting many of our marvelous national parks. I have sold my work into many different states and even into Europe. About ten years ago, I started experimenting with digital art and created several abstracts and impressionistic images that have also sold well.
