  • I'm not an artist but my dd (nearly 17) is. She looks toward nature and with the changing weather your own backyard might be looking differently! When we hiking recently she was taking close-ups of moss covered rocks. And I mean CLOSE UPS. When I asked she said that she liked the texture and might try to use it as a background to one of her prints. Hope this helps!

  • Nature is my biggest inspiration. Just life itself. I go outside sometimes and just try to take pictures of random but also macro shots of different aspects of a plant or wildlife that I come across.

    My kids would be my other inspiration. They are involved in sporting events and so I just go to shoot and see what I can capture.

    I love candid shots. Capturing expressions and priceless stories on film from any type of day full of people, friends and most importantly, Family.

  • I will paint from photographs and memory so I continue to take pictures until just the right composition appears for a painting.
