Zen is being out with my camera...time stands still and there is only the now.
Photography found me late in life and I passionately embraced it from the first day. It's opened my eyes, expanded my mind, and vitalized my life.
I'm a native Oregonian and draw inspiration from the amazing diversity of the beautiful part of the world I live in. I'm primarily drawn to nature as a subject, but also love textures, patterns, and architecture. Simplicity is a dominant characteristic of my photos.

"Once we start looking at life through a camera lens, something calm and centering comes over us. We stop worrying about the past or the future as we immerse ourselves in the present moment, which is the only place we can be when we're seeing photographically." - Jan Phillips
