All You Need is a Little Faith, Trust, and Pixie Dust

How many times have you found yourself reaching for a big goal, climbing the ladder upwards, only to look up and see that the ladder has grown, shot through the clouds, no end in sight? I find this happening from time to time; I go after a dream, I start climbing the ladder that I […]

The Tide that Takes Us

The most beautiful thing has happened in my image-making life, and it has nothing to do with business opportunities, awards, exhibitions or success.

Looking Ahead: 2011 in Review

I know it is rather obvious and unavoidable to run into so many end-of-the-year-recaps, but I fall into that category of people who just can’t help themselves. I will probably recap my year every year until I die in some sort of blog-type-thing, or maybe just in my head in years to come. Either way…one […]
