The day of the fundraiser arrived and it was gorgeous one! With the help of many, wonderful volunteers, we rapidly turned our yard into mini-festival grounds.

About the Artists:
Through the many years I have spent painting, drawing, and studying art, I have gained a sensitivity for all that it takes to make a great piece of art, along with the skills needed to produce it. My fifteen years working as an architectural designer, has given me the sensibility for design, composition, and structure. Having a strong connection with the environment and nature has created a desire to enlighten people about how sacred, and ephemeral the land we take for granted is. So, I now use my photography, to do this.
Photography is a mystical experience for me. It is a way for me to express the inexpressible, that which is sacred, in a world where not enough is held with high regard.
Trees and plants have become my focus, as I have sensed an urgency to stop the clear cutting and killing of our precious trees. So, I use my photography to show people the beauty and importance of trees and plants in our lives, and in the macrocosm of the environment. There is a great impact that each tree and plant has in our lives, making us happier, healthier and giving us a future to look forward to. My great passion is to continue creating fine images that evoke the mystery of nature while giving each subject a sense of the sacred.
