About

My work is composed of textures that I have created from photos of textured objects, and then blending those textures as well as other elements into my subject image, and using them as a visual aid to further express the emotional depth of that moment. I then put these images out into the world to be interpreted and experienced. In the big picture, my wish is to promote 'peaceful-beingness' through artful means, but right here and now... I just want you to feel that with me.

At the age of 3, I began spending most weekends camping with my family. Because my father was a photography enthusiast, I was soon given my first camera to capture the experience. And so, it began.

Over the years my endeavors have included mortgage banking (I don't know what I was thinking), to professional animal communicator (I knew what everyone was thinking), to my current endeavor as an artist (thinking not required) and everything in between.

I suppose spending so much time outdoors explains why I have always had a fascination with the natural world and the tranquility that comes from simply stepping into it. Seeing the truth and beauty for what it is, which is nature just 'being' and doing what it does, and having the ability to share it as it shows itself to me, is a privilege I am truly grateful for.

I am always available for questions, so please don't hesitate to convo me and I'll get back to you promptly.
