I have had a full life. I have been a barber stylist for 30 years. Due to health I went back to college in my mid 40s and earned a bachelors degree in fine art and minor in graphic design. Took classes to learn photography and worked for Lifetouch with students all over middle TN. For 6 years. I illustrated 4 book that was published and designed logos for many friends. Chapter L of the GWRRA. Our photography guild WCPG and The eye on the arts. To name a few. Then my Husband passed and I moved to a smaller home. I unpack and gave away a lot. I laid 1000sq.ft. of sod and 20 50lb. bags of dirt and 185 block around the flower beds personally. I planed 15 trees and 50 flowers in my flower beds. I learn how to do a buget and the details my husband handled. New life and first time on my own ever. I made the decisions before of the big picture and now learning the details. God has held me through it all and still does. Thankful!
I photographed in the schools, sports, senior student portraits. As a photographer I loved the Smyrna studio and the last 2 years I was the manager. Loved making people happy about their images. I still do a few small weddings on the side.
Illustrated 4 books published
Created logo designs
I did cut hair in Nashville for 15 year.
I was Barber stylist and due to the chemicals that I worked around, it effected my health. Had to change careers. College was offered to me and I went in my mid 40s.
Started as graphic design classes and had a minor, changed to art education but need 2 semesters and doors shut. I graduated with a bachelors in fine art in painting. I created my own lettering and logo designs in classes. I have illustrated 4 books that has been published now.
I won a “Jam Award” for being one of the top 10 photographers at Lifetouch school division. I was one of those who enter 3-portrait images taken with in the year.
