Though my own journey as an artist has included setbacks such as health problems and total loss of my catalog of work to an apartment fire, it has been in nature that I have found the will and inspiration to continue creating. Within my photographic collages I strive to convey the transformative and healing power of nature as well as themes of rebirth and reawakening. I use my photographs of nature in hopes of preserving, if only visually, an ecosystem that is likely to one day have vanished. I hope that the beauty I have captured inspires others to hold nature in reverence. Through travel I am also able to see myself in others.
