Nature has always been a part of my life. As I walked the fields next to a river on land that was originally occupied by Native Americans, a spiritual reverence emerged within me. Deep seated colors, depths of emotion in wildlife, and an appreciation of the beauty tugged at my heart to capture and share with others.
I love capturing nature. Sometimes the elements of art –form, line, color, texture, and space are dominant and sometimes it is about seizing the opportunity that presents itself and letting it tell its own story. There are times when just being in the right place at the right time is such an incredible experiences that I am challenged to do the event justice. This is what I love about nature; it is ever evolving just like my work.
As I take advantage of opportunities, sometimes my art work is created from nearby sources and sometimes I travel to capture the images I have composed in my head. Either way both my art work and I are on a journey. In order to gather these images, I have to rise before the sun is up, stay up past the time the sun has set, battle temperatures in extremes and wait patiently for hours in all of kinds of conditions. Quietly listening to what nature has to say.
Nature is powerful. As it calms my soul, puts life into perspective, shows me the way spiritually and blesses me with interactions I never would experience by staying inside, it also challenges me to be a better artist daily. My goal is to share moments frozen in time which will hopefully quiet the viewers’ soul, feed their spirit and quench their thirst for the stillness found in my images.
