I Am The Product of Blood, Sweat, and 5606.

When I was a little girl, my father brought me to the airport on a daily basis. I can’t recall a time that I wasn’t at the airport (other than ballet lessons.)  Before I was 12 or 13 I didn’t mind it much, in fact, I really enjoyed being at the airport.  But after I […]

Aviation Photography

Aviation photography has been around since the late 1800’s.  It first started with balloons and then either on the ground or in the air it took flight.  People make a living off of “aviation art.”  It’s one of my favorite areas of the art world.  I love everything from sculptures to photography.  Photography is by […]
