Notes from the Artist
Capturing the beauty of the Earth is my passion. I am grateful to work with strong, self-respecting subjects who genuinely care about Mother Nature and own their place as a messenger and protector. These kind of beings radiate the kind of inner strength and magic that can only be achieved through living in harmony. My approach is always intuitive and co-creative, which creates a safe space to allow the Soul's magic qualities to effortlessly guide the direction of the shoot. Each day I strive to create more powerful work and I am deeply grateful to be doing what I love and hopefully making a difference.
