holding nature in your hands

I create immersive abstract photographs from the most familiar parts of nature — leaves, shells, flowers, ice, and seeds. I only photograph the things I can hold in my hands. While others look at the view off in the distance, I've always been more interested in the leaf or seed that has fallen in my path. When I pick up that leaf and examine it in my hands, nature changes from being an abstract concept into something tangible and real. I make art to recreate this feeling of holding a part of nature in your hands, and forming a personal connection to it.

Because of this, my art has become popular with the owners of one-of-a-kind resorts and spas who design their spaces to nurture a similar kind of personal, authentic reflection.

This is where my art begins.
This is where my art begins: from fallen leaves, broken sticks, melting ice, weathered bark, and old shells.

It has been my honor to create art for hotels, resorts, restaurants, and wellness centers around the world, including: Atlantis Resort Bahamas, Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa (Florida), Norwegian Cruise Lines, Miraval Arizona Resort and Spa (Tucson), Four Seasons (Washington DC), The Ritz-Carlton Amelia Island (Florida), Graton Resort & Casino (California), The Address Boulevard (Dubai), Restaurant Juni (New York), Hotel Chandler (New York), Sheraton Chicago Hotel and Towers, The Woodlands Resort (Houston), Hyatt Regency Windwatch (Long Island), AtlantiCare (medical offices throughout New Jersey), Memorial Medical Center (Wisconsin), as well as many private homes.
