Beauty Unfurled | About

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHY & ARTWORK

     I am an award-winning photographer residing in Colorado Springs, Colorado. For over eleven years, I have pursued my passion for nature photography. I love to adventure on hidden trails unwrapping the beauty of light as it dances through golden aspen, and capturing the whispers of petals softly unfurling their splendor. I get lost in the color of grand landscapes and absolutely love special encounters with wildlife.

     I am also an oil painter who specializes in landscapes and wildlife. I love to create unique paintings of nature that impact others deeply. I have loved drawing from a very young age and have had the privilege of being taught by different master artists. I believe that every painting and every photograph has the power to speak to the viewer, bringing encouragement, hope and life in a very personal way.
