Socorro grew up in a Mexican American family of talented and driven “musicos”. Their stories and struggles inspired and fueled her spirit to become an accomplished mixed media artist and explore the world. Most importantly, her greatest joy is Cecelia, her daughter and now a beautiful grand daughter "Rose".
Born in San Antonio, Texas, Socorro has called Fayetteville, North Carolina home for 20 years. Today, a retired Professor, she remains creative, journaling and exploring North Carolina's beautiful state Parks and trails.
My earliest vivid memory of the outdoors was a rush of the senses in my backyard. The grass was so tall and I was so small. We lived in a suburb, a fenced yard and no landscaping or trees. The tall shoots reached for the sky, it appeared endlessly tall and wide. I was probably about two years old and the mystery of that dense growth called to me. I recall running a path thru that forest with my small arms stretched out wide, the soft crackle across my legs and hands. The tall strands were soft and the sun was warm that day. This is how it began.

As an artist, the shapes, colors and textures found in nature were always an inspiration like a diving board into beauty. I am able to travel and enjoy the great outdoors, hoping to share in the excitement of the great outdoors! This blog site will feature photos, video, park information and personal reflections. Enjoy, I'd love to hear from you !
