Inspiration lives in the broad sweep of the prairie or the unending scenery of the desert, in the play of light and shadow on a single blossom, in the quiet of a redwood forest and in the crashing on the ocean’s waves.
I am an artist, a photographer, a naturalist.
I capture that unseen beauty, that hurried-by landscape and make it accessible to others, so they can connect with the intimacy of the world as I see and experience it.
My style has been influenced by architect Frank Lloyd Wright whose architectural style emphasizes bringing nature into daily living spaces, the Arts and Crafts Movement and its inherent simplicity, and naturalist Aldo Leopold whose work focused on respect for nature and the land ethic.
I love the physicality of photography–lying on my back while peering through plants to catch unusual angles or shafts of light and shadows. Hiking in the deep prairie or the open desert to capture details seldom seen.
Photography gives me the tools to find structure in nature, beauty in architecture, abstraction in botanicals. These are integral to the creation of my art.
