My father always told me I was born with a camera around my neck. Looking through the glass finder opened a magical world to me. A way of capturing the moment yet retaining soul memories was important to me. As a young child watching my mother and grandmother create beautiful oil paintings started my love and appreciation for art. They taught me about composition and seeing nature. My brother inspired me to pick up a camera to create my art, and he taught me what I needed to know to get started. Watching him make his beautiful images in the darkroom filled me with excitement, I was hooked for life.
My love of the classical image began after seeing the work of Ansel Adams and Elliott Erwitt as a youngster. The tones and emotions they provoked were mesmerizing to me. Making the viewer laugh, smile, or feel something positive is my only intention. These are healing energies that we all need right now.
My aim is to allow the Soul of Nature to shine through in my art. Living in Sedona, Arizona for the past few years has changed me in profound ways and hopefully it shows through in my photographs. My life revolves around Spirit, finding beauty in the present moment, and honoring nature. Great Spirit provides us a beautiful palette from which to dip into, and I try to maximize on the experience by making my colors healing to the viewer. Each of my color images have been carefully selected and edited for healing of many different issues. Being a Kundalini Reiki Master has given my work a new purpose and I charge each image with Love, Positive Energy, and Light from my heart to yours.
