love and appreciation of nature came from growing
up on a farm in Falls
City, Nebraska. The great outdoors was my playground.
Exploring nature was an endless source of entertainment.
It opened my eyes to the magnificent world that
exists right in front of me no matter where I am. Painting
became my first outlet to share what I saw.
photos to originally capture and replicate my subject
became the catalyst sparking my interest in photography.
In time, I realized some things just canít be translated
on to canvas.
the beauty nature displays gives me an inner
appreciation and respect to the source
of it all. One canít be in awe of such beauty without
a belief in a power much greater than ourselves.
