HI Everyone! To borrow a quote from one of my favorite books, Anne of Green Gables, ” If you’d let me tell you what I imagine about myself you’d find it alot more interesting.”:)

I’m a bit of a daydreamer so my inner world is usually alot more exciting than my reality. Not that my reality is such a bad place to be! I’m a 35 year old student & stay at home wife married to an amazingly wonderful man (John Zarbock ) whom I love more than life itself. You may hear about him occasionally in my gallery/blog or see some of his photographs. He’s the person who really got me interested in photography and is a very good photographer himself. I’m always learning something from him!

I live in gorgeous Orange County California, just a few minutes walk to the beach. Originally I’m from a small town in Missouri, just outside of St. Louis called Cedar Hill. My family still lives there and I miss them alot, but I’m adjusting well to life on the west coast. You certainly can’t beat the weather here and there is always something exciting to do or see. With all this gorgeous scenery it’s really no wonder I’ve been inspired to improve my photography.

I’m a hopeless romantic and a passionate lover of beauty, which is what draws me to photography and graphic design. I’d like to capture, forever, some of the beauty I see all around me. We really do live in a wonderful world. Even though I’m still just a beginner at photography and graphic design I’ve opened my own online shops to feature my work. Having a shop keeps me motivated to work at my designs and constantly improve upon them. I’m thrilled to say that I’ve been lucky enough to sell my photographs and designs to people in 34 states and four foreign countries. I love knowing that other people can get enjoyment from something I’ve made and that they,too, see the beauty I’ve tried to record.

Recently I entered my first photo competition at the Orange County Fair, and one of my photographs won 3rd place in the professional division. I was completely thrilled that the judges enjoyed my work, particularly considering how excellent the other photographs were in that competition. I know that I have a lot to learn about photography & design and I’m committed to improving my art. My gallery & blog will be a good way to track that improvement and a way for people to get to know me a bit better and see what I’m working on at the moment. I hope to get to know all of you much better as time goes on. Please feel free to introduce yourself or just leave comments here or in my gallery! I love getting feedback.

Talk to you again soon,
