I am Darlene. For many years, I have seen myself as daughter, mother, sister, best friend, caretaker, and employee.

My daughter is an adult, my family is fine, and my position has been eliminated. When I picked up the camera and started exploring my world, I realized I am free. Photography challenges my mind, my creativity, and my way of seeing things.

My art is an expression of growth, beauty and life.

I am so free!
