About Me

Hey there new friend! Thanks for stopping by! I'm April (hi!) and I'm an artist fueled by sugary coffee and gorgeous light. I'm a photographer + graphic designer by day, and a painter + photographer in my free time.

I've been playing with cameras since high school, but it wasn't until I began painting that really inspired me to take photography seriously. I purchased books with photos of flowers or landscapes to paint, but that was getting really expensive. Someone suggested I take my own photos to use as inspiration/reference when I paint. BRILLIANT!  My love affair with photography was born! It's been 15+ years, and I haven't looked back!
