R.L. ArtStudios Member Since June 2013 Artist Statement As a photographer and painter, I am drawn to the ocean and nature above all other subjects. My photos reflect my belief that one of our jobs on earth is to always pay attention to the stunning world around us and to let the wonder and beauty inspire us. When I retire (many years from now), I want to own an art gallery in Rockport and spend evenings walking the beach and sharing a glass of wine with my husband...until that happens, I will continue to build my skills as a photographer and artist and save whatever money those hobbies generate to build the life I dream about. You can join me on Facebook (R.L. Artstudios), Tumblr (http://rleonia.tumblr.com) or at my blog (www.inspirationnet.wordpress.com).
