from the Heart, for the Soul
The role of the artist is not to find solutions, but to compel us to love life in all its countless, inexhaustible manifestations. ~Leo Tolstoy
I photograph what moves me.
There is so much beauty all around us
and it can be so easy to forget. So easy not to take the time.
Photography reminds me
to stop, look, open.
Every image becomes a prayer of gratitude.
My photography has been published or exhibited by places and organizations such as the U.S. Forest Service, the National Radio Project, the Sacred Land Film Project, the Barkley Pet Hotel & Day Spa, Global Village School, Paths of Learning magazine, and several Southern California publications and non-profit organizations such as the Ojai Raptor Center, the Ojai World Music Festival, and the Ojai Music Festival. My work was recently awarded First Place at the Ojai Center for the Arts "Reflect" photographic exhibit. I have participated in several exhibitions, and in 2014 produced a solo show: "A Year with the Eagles."
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence. ~Ansel Adams
