I'm a photographer, artist, and lover of nature. I specialize in photography, painting, digital and mixed media art featuring flowers, landscapes, animals, and old boats and buildings.
I developed my love for photography through documenting landscaping changes in my tiny backyard. My casual snapshots soon evolved into a passion. I upgraded my camera, fell in love with my macro lens, poured over photography lessons, and spent countless hours experimenting with light, focus, composition, and subject matter.
I love traveling to unique and scenic locations to photograph flowers, landscapes, animals, old buildings, and people. Some of my favorite subjects also continue to be those I find in my own garden. I can frequently be found crouched next to a flower or insect, camera in hand, intent on capturing an intimate, dreamy, and often whimsical portrait of a plant or animal. I see potential photos wherever I go.
I've recently delved back into one of my first artistic passions, painting, and also enjoy creating digital and mixed media artwork.
