Hello! I wanted to introduce myself since I am first day new to this awesome site. My name is Heather and I am a nurse by day and artist and proud mom of three boys 24/365! I am so excited to have found a site that I can explore others amazing talent and will be working on sharpening my photography, drawing, and painting skills before I submit my first submission. I have butterflies just thinking about it. I hope to meet a lot of you all and make some friends that enjoy and have a passion for art as I do! I will be starting my blog as soon as I get off work and am hoping I can find these talented souls that do not mind if I ask questions to better myself as an artist of all proportions! I will take any feedback and I hope one day my skills grow enough to help others also. Thank you for taking time from your day to read my introduction to this website! I sincerely hope to help contribute for the good to this blessing of a website.
Sincerely thankful,
Heather A.

Happy to be a member of this forum. I have just retired after nearly 40 years of teaching at University of Delhi. Botanist by profession, the interest in plants got a flip after I obtained my first digital camera Sony alpha 100 with normal and telephoto (60-315) lens. I have been travelling extensively in last 6 years to capture photographs of plants especially in Western Himalayas. I have also done lot of photography in California, LA, SFO and Arizona area in my last four visits to USA, capturing mostly plants and locations. More than 450 of my photographs appear in my International Book "Plant Systematics: An Integrated Approach" last published in 2010, with additional high resolution photographs in CD ROM included in the book. Have been interacting extensively on Daves Garden , efloraofindia and Flowers of India which hosts many of my photographs. Hope to have a fruitful experience here also on this forum. I have recently purchases Canon 550 D with 100 mm macro lens, and hope to make good use of it.
