Recently had opportunity to drive to Florida's west coast and visit the Collector's Gallery and Framery which represents my works there. Leah, the owner, feel in love with "Attracting" and asked me to have it printed so she could hang if on the wall. This was my first time seeing it printer and I must admit I fell in love with it myself. Printed on metal the Great Heron looks like satin standing out among the twigs and leaves in its natural environment. The piece measuring 35 x 37 inches is titled "Attracting" because that is exactly what's going on here. In its breeding plumage, this male heron is "strutting" its stuff as in pose showing off it's beautiful self with the intention of attracting a mate. "Attracting" is on display along with some of the other pieces from my collection carried by the gallery on "my wall".
If you're in Venice, FL or nearby, hope you'll take a moment and check him out along with "Early Morning Fog, Milky Way Over the Keys and Louie. Or, contact me for more info on "Attracting," other images from the "WingedLife Collection" or other pieces.
Art Night at the Burrie, a collaboration with National League of American Pen Women and the new Charlotte Burrie Community Center in Pompano Beach, FL was a huge success. Above are some of the highlights from the evening. It was an honor to create and organize this event and share it with my sister artists, all award-winning and internationally collected, and the community. We each shared our journey's to be the recognized artists we are today.

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

"Montauk Point Lighthouse" is juried into the Las Laguna Art Galery in Laguna Beach, CA "Landscapes or Seascapes" Exhibit. Available 24 x 36 inches on metal. https://www.laslagunaartgallery.com/
Story behind the photo... While visiting a dear friend and collector a few years back in the Hamptons we decided to make a mini-trip visiting lighthouses. Standing between the boulders near the water's edge the waves were wild on this gray and foggy day at Montauk Point Lighthouse. Several people standing on the cliff above were yelling at me to move concerned I'd be hit by a rogue wave. It all ended well minus drenched boots that dried out for more adventures.

Honored that from all the amazing local artists, Cleveland Clinic selected my works for the Women's Center at their Weston location, 1825 N Corporate Lakes Blvd, Weston, FL 33326. Twenty-two pieces, measuring 24 x 36 inches, each were selected from the Sacred Trees, Landscapes and Winged Life collections.
My fine art photography was selected because it invites the viewer to be transported to the extraordinary beauty, peace and healing of nature. As you probably already know, I'm passsionate about nature photography. 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.
