I am self taught and believe that I have a gift and must share it with the world. The interplay of light in nature is one of the earths most wonderful gifts and I try my best to capture that moment in time.

    You will love them when I cook them, tender and tasty! Maybe we need to go what’s the rules about shellfish and the months with "R"s??

  • From the Dept. of Fish & Game…“.The California Department of Health Services prohibits sport harvesting of mussels for food from May 1 to October 31. The viscera is where the toxins for paralytic shellfish poisoning (PSP) tend to accumulate. Clams and scallops may be eaten during the quarantine period but the viscera should be discarded.”
