about the artist

"everyone needs beauty as well as bread, 

places to play and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike."
john muir


because I travel the world in search of the next cultural experience, architectural feature, and the nature that surrounds me, I tell my story on canvas. any act of creating is connecting to people in their cultures and the senses. art is not always about words, it is the feeling you get maybe wishing you were in this far away place or visual of growing these magnificent flowers in your garden. that is what I try to express in my work.
I capture my medium in the closeups that bring the detail of beautiful bright flowers or the lines in 100 to 1,000(s) year old architecture to you. you can almost smell the fragrance and bring wonder to the hands that created these works of art/history.
people tell me that when they share in my pictures they feel like they were with me on this trip. there is no better feeling of fulfillment when your passion is recognized in the hearts of others. you know people feel and see what you saw, they truly get it. we are such a small piece on this big beautiful marble we call home soooo to capture in its beauty for just one shot hopefully stirs others to make their journey and tell their story.
