I reside in Sandy, Utah, about 15 miles south of the Great Salt Lake, in the foothills of the Wasatch National Forest.
I work as a Medical Massage Therapist and Holistic Healthcare Practitioner. I own and operate a Holistic Healthcare retreat called The Raintree Renewal Retreat. I am a big believer in nature's ability to help us heal, and that by just spending time increasing our awareness and appreciation of all the beauty found in nature, one's life can be effectively altered.
I have developed a great passion for seeking out, discovering and capturing all the various elements within nature that are inspiring or beautiful to me. I use the term 'beauty' or it's derivatives as a catch-all summary term that includes anything inspiring, motivating, beneficial, uplifting, virtuous or of an otherwise positive nature. John Muir, the Father of the U.S. National Park System, once wrote, 'Looking for and enjoying beauty is a way to nourish the soul. The universe is in the habit of making beauty. There are flowers and songs, snowflakes and smiles, acts of great courage, laughter between friends, a job well done, the smell of fresh-baked bread. Beauty is everywhere.'
We live in a wonderful world. But our world is filled with increasing stressors. Many people become over-stressed or overwhelmed by either an isolated life event or ongoing life circumstances, While few things can compare to a good massage for helping the body to relax and self-regulate, fine art can have the effect of massaging the mind. I have found that persistent meditation upon just the right subject, the right viewpoint on rose bud, the right combination of elements in a scene, or the right color scheme in a tree, can have just as profound an effect on an individual's psycho-neuro-chemistry as a two-hour full body massage. Really.
I hope you will find among my images and artwork at least one piece that either soothes your soul, mellows your mind, calms your chaos, or, that perhaps may even light your fire within. I look forward to discovering and getting to know like-minded patrons and artists alike. Please feel free to communicate with me if you have ideas or desires that I might be able to help bring to life.
