Artist's Statement

Albert Einstein said “Look deep into nature and then you will understand everything better.” My desire is for those who view my images to experience the magic of nature through my eyes and understand the need to preserve it.

Nature is full of infinite possibilities. I strive to capture a single moment that creates an intimate connection between the image and the viewer. The viewer becomes engaged with endangered species and landscape vistas, creating an emotional bond which expresses an undeniably precious world worth saving.

It’s not about where you are but how you see. The soft colors and muted pastels that illuminate my images create an illusion that inspires deep passion. I see nature through my eyes, but my creative process occurs first in my heart.

Wildlife and conservation photography require a deep passion to share a compelling story designed to effect positive change. I express my interpretation of the world around me and share this passion with the world. My hope is that my photographs arouse deep emotions within the viewer and inspire a sense of awe at the beauty of creation and the sacredness of life. I want my images to touch the viewer’s heart; to touch the viewer’s spirit; to touch the viewer’s soul; compelling the viewer to appreciate our connection with nature and our power to shape the world.

Photography keeps me close to animals and nature and puts me in that peaceful and quiet place that is difficult to find in our busy world. The spirituality of the moment is conveyed in my images.
