I am a wife, mother of 5 and grandmother to some of the little
angels in my sample pictures. I have lived in the Seattle area
all my life. In 10/2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and
underwent a double mastectomy. I would like to thank everyone
for their support and prayer.
I am a former Boeing employee, laid off after 9/11. This provided
me time to play with my computer and photo editing software.
I also spent more time playing with my granddaughter and taking
lots of pictures of her.
I continue to master my skills as a computer graphics artist
and photo editor in color and black and white. I have dabbled
in art since childhood and my creative abilities have shined
in this new found craft. I take great pride in my work and bring
smiles to people's faces. Because I have gotten so many requests
and compliments, I have decided to turn it into a licensed business
to share with everyone. I am learning 3-D imaging and hope
to be able to offer it in future.
I named my business, "Perfect Angels", because even the spunkiest
of children can become a perfect angel in my enhanced photos.
The angel pictures are something you can look at to fill your
heart, and to remind us that the love and innocence of our children
is a very special and beautiful thing. I also like to be creative
with my photography and editing in many different ways.
For several years, I have been a finalist and winner of the
Annual International Photography Contest held in Puyallup, WA.
Every year my work can be seen in Exhibition Hall during the Puyallup Fair.
I have been a winner in the Vacation Photography online contest for Long Beach, WA.
I am a member of

It's a great web site full of information for the professional
and amateur photographers, as well as the wonderful support you receive from others.
I have volunteered my skills to a number of organizations for
many different types of events. Giving back to the community
and worldwide organizations gives me great pleasure. To share
ones talents to help others is part of what makes this world a nicer place.
What can I do? Hopefully, anything you want done! Share your
ideas with me!
I hope you enjoy my creations. I look forward to working with
