As an only child, adopted by two wealthy entrepreneurs too busy to notice her, she quickly realized the love of writing, art, music, animals, and photography.

A few of her favorite photographers include Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Philippe Halsman, Berenice Abbott, Mary Ellen Mark, Carol McKinney Highsmith, Irving Penn, Andrew Prokos, Sally Mann, Vivian Maier, Frederick H. Evans, and Andre Kertesz.

Famous abstract artist Jackson Pollock is one of her ancestors as is Alfred Barr, one of the founders of the Modern Museum of Art (MMoA). Additionally, her biological mother is a wildlife artist whose art is currently on display in an Arizona gallery.

Some of her favorite artists include Kit King, Adele Sypesteyn, Ed Swarez, Carla McAfee, Gillian Lee Smith, Pauline Agnew, Gary Komarin, Heather Day, Ida Kohlmeyer, and Frida Kahlo.
