I am a South Dakota native, born in Watertown. I have resided in Sioux Falls for the past 40 years.
Art should stir specific emotions or connect us with distinct memories. Using vivid colors and simple composition,I try to capture natures delicate grace in the everyday things. Amazing wonders surround us, whether it is a blazing sunset or a delicate weed blowing in the wind. Many of my images are taken on the vast prairie and the quaint rural areas of South Dakota.
Photography has given me the ability to view the world through new perspectives. I use photography to appreciate the richness of natures simple little treasures and as a window to archive the rustic charm of the past
