in its Elegant Grace
and Phenomenal Abundance,
Contains an Inherent Energy
that Weaves the Fabric of Life.

It is Full of Mystery, Magic
and Miracles,
Where the Ordinary is Truly

Its Shapes, Patterns, Textures,
and Array of Colours,
Fascinate and Rejuvenate Me.

Its Movement, Rhythm and Cadence,
Nourish and Inspire Me.


While living a back-to-the-land lifestyle, I discovered that being in nature enriches, inspires and renews me. The colors, shapes, textures, reflections and light create designs that beckon me to ‘come a little bit closer.'  Something I encourage everyone to do.

I don’t need to foray far for my inspiration. There is an abundance of beauty and abstract delight in the gorgeous gardens that grace my home; in the streams, rivers, ponds and lakes that bless my community; in the ice and snow mingled with leaves and water in the ditch on the side of the road; and in the catkin filled mud puddles of spring.

Taken from my home environment and rural community, my photographs are a spiritual journey of discovery with magical moments and stories of wonder.  It’s a pleasure to share them with you. May they renew your vision, refresh your soul and uplift your spirit, as they do mine. 

Treat yourself to viewing a 7 minute PechaKucha.  My PK was inspired by abstract images I discovered in-the-ditch in the winter of 2018.  I created a storyline to accompany the civilization of people that made their presence known to me.
