I am a self taught photographer and scanographer. I like to work with different mediums in art.  I currently have returned back to school to major in fine arts. I live and breathe nature, flowers and plants. They are a passion of mine. Photographing subjects up close can take hours, it  provides me with the opportunity to see details that you might not ordinarily notice, to reveal how each element interacts within itself. Scanography provides intimate close ups of plant life and flowers arranging a composition can take hours. I developed a interest in scanography a few years ago. I was interested in pulling out more detail in a image. This work allows me to preserve these moments in my mind, in order to share this beautiful experience with others.  Whether I’m shooting a close up of a sunflower or treasured companions, my aim is to preserve these moments.
