Collaboration - Connection - Celebration
A photograph can stop time, preserving a moment that is both past and timeless allowing us to to marvel at the details of life: the delicate pattern on a bee's wings, the tautness of a bird’s body as it takes off in flight, the color of a butterfly’s eyes.
A camera, combined with decades of shamanic training, allows me entrance to invisible worlds. I step through my lens and become a bee gathering pollen, a bird in the air or a dragonfly on the hunt. I consider every individual insect, animal, plant or other subject as my co-creator.
Like our world, my own nature is constantly shifting. With every photo or piece of art I make, I change. I create to connect with, feel and celebrate inner and outer nature and to share my experience with others.
