About Emerging Vista: I have an imprint in my mind that always includes a field leading to the forest, with rolling hills behind it, seemingly unending. That’s how my view of the world emerged atop the hill at my parent’s farm. Time was so much slower and that feeling of adventure still permeates my ideas and pursuits. I lean into memories that bring me joy as a guide for my next move.
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.
