My photography is inspired by my love and reverence for the natural world. My intent is to capture the amazing beauty and complexity of the smaller creations of nature. I think of these images as portraiture and I strive to reveal the unique essence of the flower, fruit, vegetable, leaf, or shell in my focus. Although some of my photos are taken in a natural setting, I enjoy arranging still life compositions that feature these beautiful objects and photographing them in my small home studio. My hope is that my viewer will appreciate these lovely natural creations in the same way they would appreciate a beautiful sculpture.
