Artist Statement

My curiosity and appreciation for the natural world created my interest in nature photography. It is the anticipation and delight in discovering what nature reveals while out exploring that has shaped my passion for sharing nature with others through photography.

I am Inspired by the way the light magically transforms a landscape, the unique patterns shaped by the forces of nature, and the infinite textures and abstracts designed by the earths elements.
