During my travels I am grateful for the times of peacefulness that can be found along the way. Those times are most often experienced in rural areas, on shores and riversides, in parks and gardens of all sizes, and in sacred spaces. This work has developed mainly as my means of expressing appreciation for, and connection with, the natural environment. Here I can explore various themes such as the entwinement of nature with the human-made world; nature reclaiming its space; the elemental qualities of earth, water, and sky; and the cycle of growth, abundance, and decay. I am also interested in old and historied structures as well as spiritual sites and beliefs. With these images I can recall each quiet corner of the world that provided an oasis on the journey.
