About Me: I love photography, and by trade am a graphic designer and web designer. In 2015, after a lot of encouragement from friends who loved my photos, I started a business designing greeting cards and postcards. And I'm loving it! The name is Santa Barbara Greeting Cards. I live in Santa Barbara, CA and there is so much good material to shoot here with the mountains and the ocean so close. I also raise Monarch Butterflies, which is why I centered my logo around one. They need our help if they are going to survive.
My Interests: I sing in various bands, including my own... Donna Greene & The Roadhouse Daddies. I also sing with an 18-piece big band and a jazz sextet.
I swim a lot, hike, just got a new Australian Shepherd puppy, and like to garden... nurseries are a weak spot for me, including native plants. I love nature and live in a canyon where lots of wild animals roam.
I hope you like my cards!
Itís not always thrilling to go home after being on vacation. Iíve been there and done that, but Iím lucky girl to be able to call Santa Barbara home. No matter where I travel, and Iíve been many places, Iím always happy to come home. When I moved back to Santa Barbara a number of years ago, I promised myself I would never take it for granted. It is one of the most beautiful places in the world. Nestled between the Pacific Ocean and the Santa Ynez Mountain Range, it offers temperate weather, a wide range of breathtaking foliage, and an extensive list of places to explore. And the sunsets are unlike any Iíve ever seen.
Right over the mountains, the Santa Ynez Valley has some gems as wellÖ Solvang, the Danish Capital of America, the many vineyards and wineries lacing the hillsides, fabulous eateries, some world class breweries, and numerous country roads to explore by bicycle.
Since I started making cards of Santa Barbara, I've decided to branch out and create cards with my photos from other parts of the world. I hope you enjoy them!
