“No regrets ”, my mother's favorite advice. This collage is hand created of images, not all my own, but mostly and reminds me to sing through life. Finding love along the way. 8x10" collage on handmade paper SOLD. Prints available.

Maui, Hawaii (2017)
This digital collage is created from images I captured on a trip to Maui. Hiking this barren but beautiful crater inspired an idea to fill it with all the flower pictures I captured that day. Prints available.

Child with Flowers (2016)
This digital collage is created from a vintage image of me as a child. Surrounded by all things that express my person, this image has become the Sugar Beauty Photography mark. NFS.
