Excited that I can now announce that "Rosie" won First Place in the National League of American Pen Women - Fort Lauderdale Branch Juried Media and Fine Arts Exhibit. Honored to be among these 57 works by 31 artist. It's quite a stunning show, perhaps one of the most exquisite I've ever seen. Showing through April 29th at Friends of the Anne Kolb Nature Center.

Perhaps the most stunning exhibit I've ever hung. Saturday we installed the Annual Juried Exhibit of the National League of American Pen Women-Fort Lauderdale Branch featuring 58 artworks from 31 amazing women artists. I'm feeling tickled pink that both of my pieces were juried into this fine exhibit. On exhibit until end of April at the Anne Kolb Nature Center, 751 Sheridan Street, Hollywood, FL 33019. Let me know if you'd like to visit together.
Many of my earlier works, printed on photograpy paper, matted and framed are on exhibit in my latest solo exhibit "Photographs By Phoenix" at the new Parkland Library, 6620 N University Dr, Parkland, FL. Most of the 25 works on display are limited edition pieces being offered at special prices. The show includes birds, wildlife, lanscapes, waterscapes, sunrise/sunset, Everglades and even a favorite piece taken in Ireland. It also includes my first award-winning photograph, "Tree at Sunset," that happened to win 1st Place and inspired me to embrace my path as a conservation photographer. If you're local, would love to give you a personal tour. If any of these nature wonders speaks to you, please let me know and we can discuss how to get it to you. Thanks for viewing. email@example.com
Grateful to learn that the 12x12 on metal with frame version of "Fan Dance" has a new home on Florida's west coast. Thanks dear collector. See more in the 12 x 12 Collection.

Press Release: Cleveland Clinic Florida Acquires 22 Large Works from Conservation Photographer Phoenix
In October 2021, 22 large fine art photographs were installed in the permanent collection at Cleveland Clinic Florida's Women's Center at their Weston location, 1825 N Corporate Lakes Blvd, Weston, FL 33326.
After considering a number of local South Florida artists, proceeds from a charitable donation were used to purchase the 22 large works from Phoenix. Phoenix is an award-winning, internationally collected nature and wildlife photographer. Each of the 22 fine art photographs measures 24 x 36 inches and is printed on metal. They are installed in two waiting rooms and four examination rooms. The works were selected from Phoenix’s “Sacred Trees,” “Landscapes” and “Winged Life” collections.
“Reflecting the intersection of art and healing, Phoenix’s nature, fine art photographs transport viewers from the outside-in to a deep meditative place of peace and healing,” said Angelica Guckes, curator.
Phoenix is passionate about nature photography and healing. “For me the importance of nature is far more than a scientific necessity for creating air, clean water and producing food. It is a sacred necessity for healing and bringing peace to the human soul.
“It’s an honor to have my works as part of the Women’s Center at Cleveland Clinic and make a difference in women's lives, especially those who may be facing difficult times.”
