My art is focused on nature. My intention is to increase integrity in our relationship with life by deepening an awareness of our connection to all things. All life is connected. All of our actions matter. I choose specific clips of nature that I photograph and then turn into prints. I am voicing the gentle and too often overlooked communication that nature offers us. We get so busy and caught up in the intensity of life that we forget to listen to the subtler energies that have so much to teach us. Realizations about the purpose of our lives on this planet can be drawn from nature. These are deep and varied according to each individual. I aim to express my explorations of these understandings. The final work creates a quiet space for contemplation and reflection.
