My artwork is for inspiration and healing. Capturing the Soul of the Moment, I hike into the woods and take photos using natural sunlight. The sun calls me to a spot, I click the shutter, when I see that dancing light, peak light. These patterns are also called refractory patterns of light by scientists. I call them Jewels in the Water. Red Cardinal was taken in the autumn, with colorful leaves in a shallow stream, near my home. Continue reading

Last week, when winter turned to summer, I took a hike with a dear friend on a nearby shaded forest trail surrounded with cool shallow streams. In Shutesbury, MA, near my home, there are lots of trails in the woods. It was good to be Under the Forest Canopy, connecting with my friend, getting some exercise amidst the beauty of the woods. We walked right by the spot I took this photograph. A nice memory. A sweet hike. Continue reading

Light. Water. Transformation.

When I take my camera into the woods, I feel my connection with the forest. It’s like meditating – a way to get back to my own true nature. The sun calls me to a particular spot and I click the shutter when I see that rich, afternoon light … dancing light. Most of these photographs are taken within walking distance of my Western Massachusetts home. They are a celebration of New England seen through the eye of my heart. My work is about inspiration and healing – about being so present in the moment that everything vibrates and shines. These photographs are about sun light. I see perfection in nature – patterns – artistic jewels that reveal themselves. Continue reading
