My treks out into the wilds are about much more than making photographs. The natural world sustains me with its beauty. While I do travel with my camera in hand, the intent of my daily outings is to practice seeing, listening, opening to awe. I possess a high reverence for nature, which I hope is evident in my work. For me, immersing myself in nature is a patient engagement with something beyond what is visible. It takes time to settle in, to observe what lessons nature has to offer. My art is the process I use to have that conversation. As an artist, I seek to illuminate the elusive self by engaging directly with the beauty of the natural world. What I have discovered through experiencing nature in this way is an intimate connection and innate belonging which transcends the personal to all of creation. Through my work, I invite you to connect deeply with the truth of your own personal experiences while opening to the possibility of a new reality. May you get a taste of the beauty, freedom, and connection that the natural world holds and perhaps remember your place in the whole. Surround yourself with beauty. All of my work is available for purchase and would make a lovely gift for yourself or someone you care for.
