Welcome to Studio Blue Spruce. This is a website that deals with writing, photography, and nature. I may add other areas as time goes on. I have always had a love of nature. I grew up in San Jose/Silicon Valley and spent a lot of time hiking/camping at local, state, and national parks in California. I also spent summers in a wooded area of Michigan, where I now live. As for my background, I have a two year degree in Liberal Arts and studied writing, art and graphic design, and dance, among other things. I enjoy writing, photography, watching wildlife, and learning new things.
