I was raised knowing that artists were in my ancestory and I had the same passion and creativity. My great uncle was the famous Jon Gnagy, who was the first painter to be aired on television with a how-to instruction. I used to draw as a kid with his art kits, but didn’t feel like that was my true talent. There was something out there to explore that would allow me to truly create. In December of 2009, I started taking photographs of animals and landscape and really loved how it felt when you took that perfect snap shot. My husband and I would go to local music spots and listen to live music and then that’s whenI realized the genre of photographs I wanted to pursue. I love trying to capture the music and passion that musicians have in their face and their voice when they play. It continues to be a wonderful passion because with every new set of photos I take, I learn more about my photography and look forward to growth for many years.
