Maria Swartout

I'm Maria Swartout, 36, and currently reside in the Ithaca/Newfield area. I've been all over the country more times than I count now. I had a Liver Transplant in 2003, and the photos I take I donate proceeds towards Organ Donation with my sales, to local hospitals etc. I'm an Artist by trade, in most mediums, but love to draw. I've always loved Photography but have recently been spending most of my free time snapping photos when ever possible. I've done a few private photo shoots for friends and family and enjoy every minute of it.
