Welcome to my site. 

Please browse at your leisure and bear with me, as my site is still under construction.

I’ve been capturing the beauty and elements of nature for over 25 years. A native Texan, I’m self-taught in photography through classes and in-the-field experiences. I love the amazing gifts nature offers us and have learned that the special moments one shares with nature cannot be found anywhere else and they are unique to each individual.

The vibrant colors and art of nature draw me in. My artistic vision leads me to explore images that can be found within the “big picture” by observing detail in a scene which might otherwise be overlooked – a flow or combination of colors, one tree that stands out from the forest, or a play of light upon a subject. Nature never ceases to provide opportunities for one who is paying attention. Included in my body of work are expressive waterscapes and landscapes, with an emphasis on abstracts. I strive to capture not only the beauty, but the emotion and feeling of nature in my images. My hope is the viewer will find within them a moment of escape to enjoy nature. 

As my art evolves I am also creating one-of-a-kind mixed media pieces inspired by the colors and beauty of nature.  They too can be found on my site.

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me.  If you are interested in any of the Mixed Media pieces, please contact me directly.


Thank you for visiting,
