I am constantly searching for the SPIRIT of trees and forests and have found that I am drawn to the mystical in my subjects. They speak to me and challenge me to listen to their stories and capture the ethereal rather than what is seen at first glance. Using my camera as a brush on the forest palette of greens, browns, reds, ambers, yellows, grays, blues and purples I create my images in camera capturing a moment in time when I have stopped to listen and share the sylvan secrets offered to me by the spirits of the forest. . .
