I'm Thankful for my opportunity to travel to East Africa and return home safely!
It was truly a trip of a lifetime! I was able to experience the adventures of
wildlife safari, learn about the masai people, camping in the serengeti, hot air balloon ride over East Africa with a champagne breakfast afterwards and meeting
a new group of friends from Australia, London, New Zealand, Zimbabwe and California!
After returning home I was blessed to receive best in Show recognition from the Dutch
Art Gallery and Artist of Texas, Honorable Mention from The Irving Art Association
Wildlife Exhibit, Pastel Society Of The Southwest- Still Life and Floral Award.
I was also selected into Louisiana Art & Artists' Guild-43rd Annual Exhibit, and
The City Of Frisco Texas- Public Art Program - Art In The Atrium.
More exciting news to come in December!!!

This is just a glimpse of a few of my favorite moments and the wonderful things I was able to
photograph and be a part of while in East Africa!
A special Thank You to Steven Powell who was our photography mentor and instructor
while on safari. With his guidance I felt proficient using my Canon EOS Rebel XSi Camera and safari lens
(100-400 telephoto lens). I was able to bring home over 4,000 images and numerous
video recordings of the Masai people and East Africa wildlife and more.
