Artist Statement
 

I  find endless inspiration in nature – both human and natural. Being outdoors offers me visual, material, spiritual, and energetic inspiration:  the camera allows me to capture details of growth and decay, and to be reminded of the persistent cycle of life. 

A passionate traveler, I continue to be boundlessly amazed by different cultures, the arts, and the human kindness that touches me around the globe. 

 

While our world of cultural and religious differences raises many challenges, I choose to focus on the commonalities of humankind through her photographs.

 

Encaustic wax adds an otherworldly atmosphere to many of these photographs.  I seek to achieve that artistic poise where the image exists as both photograph and painting at the same time.
