  Before I capture a still life image there is a story...a story that can be interpreted in many ways.  Props, if any, are simple and few.  The subject takes center stage surrounded by surfaces and lighting which enhance the simplicity and beauty of the scene.

As a self-taught photographer, my mind is constantly developing ideas for the next still life shoot.  Having the opportunity to be the "Creative Director" in all aspects of my vision is not only exciting but also provides a chance to document the process and share the steps with you. 

Before I capture an image there is a story...a story that can be interpreted in many ways.  Props, if any, are simple and few.  The subject takes center stage surrounded by surfaces and lighting which enhance the simplicity and beauty of the scene.  From start to finish, there is a plan.  With this plan comes learning, creative success, surprises, and all of the joy that creating art provides.

If you are developing your own creative skills and processes, I am delighted you are here!  It is my goal to share the details of my journey with the hope that you will find inspiration, support, and knowledge you can take on your journey.  Please contact me to share your story as I would love to know more about you and your successes!  

Follow along with me and let's creatively support each other every step of the way.

you are truly delighted by the art you create for yourself "
