Creating a loving and dedicated representation of some detail in nature, whether it is a piece of driftwood, a flower, or a landscape view gives it importance to other people. I would like to help others anchor a spiritual connection with nature through intimate images that draw them in to appreciate the immortal beauty of life around us.
