“I am a dreamer and a doer. I am constantly challenging myself to believe that anything is possible with God, that He is anxious to give us the desires of our hearts. I want to live a life that screams from the mountaintops a story of the goodness of God.”(bio photos by Erica Joy Photography)

“When you walk out your door and really look around you, the world is one miraculous Creation of light, texture and color. I see beauty everywhere, in the largest of subjects as in the sky, to the smallest of flowers hiding in the grass beneath my feet.
(If you have ever traveled with me you know I take a million photos!)
My art is my attempt to capture that beauty that is found daily, and my hope is to encourage others to take time and have eyes to see the world around them. “
