Artist Statement:

"My passion is to hike into remote wild places and focus on the light playing across the landscape. I find inspiration in wildflowers, glaciers, fall colors, clouds and patterns. I feel very fortunate to experience the natural beauty hiking into our wild areas in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska. I hope my images will allow others to see  these scenes with a sense of wonder and enjoyment. My further desire being a nature  photographer is to encourage others to see, respect and help protect our fine treasure of wild places."
