I am blessed with the ability to find the compositions of nature that reveal the “authenticity and realism”, needed to complete my photographic style. With my artwork, I bring a “close up” look at the life in our environment; hoping to convey to the viewer the overall need to preserve this incredible world we live in.
I joined the Allied Arts Council of Spruce Grove in 2010. I enjoy talking with the extremely talented members of the Art Gallery and continue to learn from them.
The medium of photography has allowed me to pay homage to the vast diversity of life in our natural world. I bring to the viewer the most authentic and realistic representation of each life form that I have photographed.
In 2010 my friends encouraged me to join the Allied Arts Council of Spruce Grove. That year I won first prize in the Photography Category of the Open Arts Competition held in their gallery. The City of Spruce Grove purchased my picture “A Hummingbird’s Moment.” To this day I am still a member.
God put it in my heart to; combine His visual Creations; (use my photographs); with His Word, (Scripture from the Bible-King James Version, to bring a novel form of spiritual art forward into the future. Thus, an infinite possibility of my artwork is available with or without scripture to edify the viewer.
