About Me & Work

Photography is a passion and a love that allows me to express my appreciation for all things in nature.

I love being outside. I typically spend at least one of my weekend mornings precariously perching, crouching, squatting in a compromising position, or chasing light as it dances across the surface of butterfly wings, water, and flower petals. It is in these moments, in the stillness and quiet of the dawn, that I am able to find harmony and be most at ease.

Macro (close up) Photography is a favorite medium of mine for expressing the delicate beauty that exists within various elements of the natural environment. Shallow depth of field & limited areas of sharp focus are used in my works in order to convey the calm and tranquility that I experience while hiking in the woods, meandering around a garden, or walking through a field of flowers.

When you take a flower in your hand and really look at it, it's your world for the moment. I want to give that world to someone else. Most people in the city rush around so, they have no time to look at a flower. I want them to see it whether they want to or not. ~Georgia O'Keeffe

I hope you enjoy my images and that they inspire you to go out and look for the beauty in the small things.
