Introducing the Artist
My name is Nicole and my Daddy named me. I treasure this for
found my dad a few years ago. When an infant I was adopted
and cared for by some wonderful parents who could never give birth,
but raised a wonderful artist. I was raised well, and have always
loved to play in the dirt and have fun. I remember when I was in
elementary school; I went out and planted some seeds. I forgot that
I did this and weeks later, I had cucumbers and sunflowers.
For years I loved to plant seeds and watch that which would sprout.
In High School I became a part of the annual staff and loved
photography as well. My fabulous teacher encouraged me to submit
my work to the county fair. Each entry I submitted won a prize,
2nd or 3rd place. I gardened as well in my teenage years.
In my early twenties I married and had three sons.
I forgot the cameras existed and focused on my family. After I raised those
3 boys, I started taking pictures again and it was
no time before I outgrew that first camera and wanted something
with more pixels, more mm and more of most everything I could get.
When I go to the park, or walk in our neighborhood, I usually have
binoculars AND a camera with me. I take more time walking
2 miles than anyone I know. I see the little orange cosmos there,
and a Lincoln sparrow under the pomegranate tree.
Then I might see an anise swallowtail fly on past or a
coopers hawk after a black phoebe. I have found how many people
I get to meet when out on those little walks, and that is
very edifying. So as you peek at the pictures displayed,
know you can visit the website and see a plethora of
other images, that will certainly delight you.
God Bless you and have a glorious season!
