Photographic Artistry

  • "Ghost Train"

    The Orange Blossom Cannonball No. 2 is a wood burning steam engine which has been featured in many movies including "Oh Brother Where Art Thou" starring George Clooney. It took over 25 layers and several months to create what has been called a "magical" piece, winning multiple awards and juried into multiple exhibits.

  • "Covered in Love"

    Creating a peaceful retreat instilled in me a feeling of being "Covered in Love".

  • Garden Daydream

    Enter the garden where dreams begin. This piece is created from over 75 layers including 21 birds, rabbit, caterpillar, butterflies, a bee... I wanted to create a piece where the more you look, the more you see... where you can relax and enjoy the fantasy!

  • "Trapped in Time"

    During this season in history we may feel as if we are "trapped in time". However we are not helpless, hopeless or alone.

  • Big Moon in Sunset

    A favorite of moon gazers! The original piece was created as an experiment while I was snowed in one winters day. This was in 2010, when I first began my journey in photography. In the first version I had a more opaque moon. Since that time I have refined the piece by changing the moon to a more transparent version, which I find more intriguing.

  • "The Dancers"

    Enchanted evenings and Romance go hand in hand! This piece can be customized with another couple of your choice. Please contact me for details.

Fine Art Photography

  • Mt. Rainier, Reflection Lake, WA

    Another award winning image... a serene place for dreaming in the garden...

  • Mt. Dora Lighthouse at Sunset

    This award winning photo was taken just after sunset in Mt. Dora, FL.

  • The USS Arizona & Memorial, Pearl Harbor, HI

    This was a heart wrenching sight. Capturing this image from a helicopter over Honolulu you can see the USS Arizona visible under the water. It is the tomb of 1102 US soldiers who perished trapped inside after a surprise attack by the Japanese on Pearl Harbor Dec 7,1941. The memorial building sits above the ship, but does not touch it. The sobering memorial is only accessible by boat and well worth the trip.

Seek that which enriches your spirit...Be kind, Be forgiving, Be loving... Be moved by the beauty and wonder of God's creations... Be blessed & Enjoy the journey.
