"Rest and Upheaval"
Queen Dandelion, Rialto Beach, Olympic National Park, July 2018
Biography: There's a quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson that describes my art well: "The soul in man is not an organ, but a light... From within or from behind, a light shines through us upon things, and makes us aware that we are nothing, but the light is all." My task as a photographer is to capture light in the form of digital pixels; but my task as an artist is to capture a glimpse of the soul shining through. I focus on themes of reconnecting with that part of us that is natural and wild, and representing the wonderful diversity of human sensual experience.
