Artist Statement

As I go about my daily life, I have noticed an overall lack of appreciation for the natural world. I find aesthetic qualities in the minor details of what I believe to be overlooked aspects of nature. I attempt to capture the beautiful moments I see in nature in order to share these instances with anyone who is willing to see for themselves the beauty of nature.

Nature is in constant flux forever changing with the passing seasons. I aim to encapsulate a moment in time that will only occur at that moment. The next moment it will be completely different, the lighting, the way the subject is moving or posed, and even the condition of the subject will always be different. You can never recapture that exact moment in time.

I hope that people view my photography intimately, relate to them, and take away an appreciation for nature, especially in the small details that they may never think about such as the elaborate detail of butterfly scales.
