I consider myself a mixed media artist (octobercatstudios.com) but my first love was photography. My dad gave me a 110 film camera when I was in elementary school and as technology evolves so do my cameras. I have combined my love of art and photography here on Zazzle. Any paintings or drawings in my store have been created by me. I have lived in Virginia most of my life, from the East coast to the Blue Ridge mountains, so most of my photos have been taken here in this beautiful and diverse state.
