There's always a lot to say in these things, but I'm not going to bore you with a lot of text you can read in the FAQ page, and I usually just prefer to let my images speak for themselves.
This has been a long journey, from a childhood adoration of my grandfather's prowess with video and photography, and his love of wildlife. In the last ten years or so, I've had the chance to be more active, out in nature more often, and spending lots of time learning and growing as I go. This site is the fruition of my efforts, and the images you'll see have been taken over a very long period of time.
My art business has been designated as a "Trusted Art Seller" with The Art Storefronts Organization, which means you can shop with confidence, and know that I stand behind the quality and value of my products.
I hope you'll take a look around, Visit the Entire Gallery (which is categorized by type of animal/scenery for ease of selection), the Gift Shop (which has a lot of great items for holidays, birthdays, anniversaries or just because you need something for yourself!), and of course our feature galleries on the main page.
You can see more about me, my process, and some future plans on the FAQ page. Enjoy!
Great artists, a love of nature, and modern technology have been big drivers in how much I love what I do.
There's no technique for inspiration, since wherever I go I usually have a camera with me. It's fun to have a random moment traveling along, seeing a hawk or a majestic eagle, or an amazing sunset, and having the opportunity to just take pictures "in the moment."
Coming up by going to a ton of craft fairs and art shows has been invaluable to understanding how artists work best. But having my own shop in our beautiful little town of Shepherdstown has been one of the highlights of my career. I'm fortunate to live where I do, and do what I love.
