Full Moon in Paris


A few weeks ago I was walking to dinner in Paris. The sun was setting to the west and the full moon was shinning bright. A good friend taught me that a full moon is a sign of a new beginning. For this, I am always looking out for a full moon. This was the perfect opportunity to capture the full moon this night. The story behind this particular full moon is that a childhood friend of mine got engaged thousands of miles away on this night. She now has a copy of this photograph to share with her fiance and the start of their new life together.

Color and Architecture of Gaudi


When I told people that I was traveling to Barcelona the first thing they told me is that I had to see the Gaudi architecture. Its unique and unusual and a must see if you are in Barca. Here is my take on one of houses.

Sintra – a fairytale land of far far away


Thank you all of the new followers. I have had a great response to the blog so far. I have been traveling for the past couple days to Spain and Portugal. I am currently in Barcelona. You can read recent blog posts to catch up on my travels and photographs!
I absolutely loved Lisbon! I made a mistake in my travel plans and was able to stay for an extra day. Which was great for me! By the hotels suggestion I ventured to the town of Sintra. Sintra is a fairytale town filled with castles. Its about an hour ride from the center of Lisbon and a 4 euro roundtrip. Its a beautiful town and it may sounds strange but it smelled amazing!! The whole town is filled with greenery. Its a great hike if you are up for it. My dress and flats were not made for the hiking trip. There are buses and trolleys to help people up the hill to explore the castles. Here are a few photos from my visit.

A big thank you to all of you have been following!! I will be exploring Barcelona for the next couple of days so be sure to check back for more photos!

A new venture into wholesale


In January I participated in the wholesale show Beckmans at the Merchandise Mart here in Chicago. This was a new venture into the wholesale world. I am happy to say I have work in stores in Indiana, Michigan, North Dakota, and Illinois.

I had the opportunity to visit one of my stores today in Highland Park, IL called CityWoods  Here is a photograph of some of my pieces on their wall. They do a great job merchandising their store. If you are in the area stop by and take a look!
