About Dream Revealed: Early on in my career I interviewed with a woman who had a studio in her backyard. I honestly had never seen anything like it so I didn’t even realize it was a possibility. Once I saw it, it changed my path. I knew that I one day wanted to have a backyard studio. I find that to be true about so many things in life. Seeing something or someone new can change the course of your life. I try and recognize when I see the things I appreciate so they can be revealed in time.
About the Vast Views Collection: Looking out over a landscape has always stirred up a well of emotions and possibility. As a child I would walk to the highest elevation on my parent's property and climb a large tree that had a limb hanging over the fence row, overlooking the valley. I would walk out to the edge of the tree limb and sit there absorbing the landscape. It felt vast and full of possibilities. I still remember the excitement it stirred in my core and that same feeling happens to me today. This year I’m focusing on that feeling and bringing more of that possibility and emotion to my view. My hope is that it also stirs those emotions in my collectors.
