I was finally able to spend a day updating my site!

People often ask me if I do my own website updates. The answer is YES. (And I have actually even built this site from scratch all by myself, not that it is a fancy site.) Well, that is why this site did not get update for almost two months. I was totally swamped and had no time (physically and psychologically), yikes. But I do LOVE doing maintenance and updates to my site so I cannot think of having anyone else do it for me!

More new images were added to the ILLUSTRATION SECTION, and I also finally revised AWARDS page which I was lazy enough to have left it alone for about a year, oops..
