My name is Mary.  I'm a succulent obsessed desert dweller and I have way too many photos on my iPhone. I find beauty in every day life and I want to capture it all. The moments in between the "stuff" are my favorite. The desolate & abandoned landscape around me at every turn inspire me and my work.  I'm constantly amazed at the uniqueness of this place I call home.  

I grew up in the snowy Midwest and landed in the desert eight years ago with my best friend and husband from the same hometown <insert mushy love story here> 

When I'm not working, I'm busy chasing after my toddler son and consuming copious amounts of coffee to do so.  You can also find me at a backyard BBQ in my neighborhood, hiking in the desert, trying new craft beers with my husband, cooking up a delicious meal, or visiting friends and family all around the U.S.
