My love for Nature and photography go hand in hand. The use of both of these mediums has allowed me to connect in a much deeper way. As a photographer I find pleasure and peace in the quiet moments, I become, in some small laughing way a child again. Over the years and even before I picked up my first camera my eyes had captured the patterns in Nature, but beyond that, I was able to see and feel the energy of life. There are countless patterns that exist in the universe, yet no student of Nature can ever hope to know or photograph more than a few of them. The key to it all is being able to "see" it all unfold versus simply "looking" at it with a quick glance of the eye.

My perception of the designs in Nature opens up a wonderful appreciation of the world; which has been the impetus for a life-long interest and drive not only in photography but also in life. It allows me to bring Nature and the miracle of ongoing creation in the world to the tips of my fingers and into my work. Through my work, I have strived to bring emphasis to the grand design of Nature and how it interconnects with our individual lives. This has been my goal as a photographer is to be able to facilitate a fresh vision through a discerning perspective.

Patterns exist in the change of seasons, the surface of the earth, and the expansiveness of the stars and our universe. Patterns are all around us, on trees, stones, sand, bodies of water, the sky, and everywhere else your eye will take you. That is the beauty of Nature, but also the underpinning of nature’s energy source and lifeline.

All the patterns encapsulate into one, revealing what we call our natural world. This is a gift from our universe. We deserve to take the time and look at and appreciate the natural artistry that continues to unfold.
