I love light, form, shape, texture, pattern, line, and movement. Achieving a balance of these elements in an image is the surest way to create photographs that people love, that resonate and impact; pictures that will endure. My goal is to make people look again…and see.
I’m crazy about plants and collect and grow them. I’ve spent years in the botanical garden world as a curator and head of horticulture, writer, educator, speaker, and media spokesperson. I’ve had an unparalleled opportunity to develop a personal vision, using the elements of photography to showcase plants and gardens in my own special way.
